Setting Up and Building Firefox

Building Firefox (or Thunderbird) takes preparation. There are a number of pieces of the build environment that you must have. Everything necessary to build Firefox is available free; however, if you have the full Visual C++ (Visual Studio), you have some additional tools, such as the IDE/editor environment.

Several sites on the Internet deal with setting up the environment and building Mozilla products. One excellent site is http://gemal.dk/mozilla/build.html. A recommendation is to print these pages and use them as a checklist in your quest to build Firefox or Thunderbird.
