If you register I can move this to our Extension development forum.

You should start with this tutorial on creating add-ons.

i dont know how to create as xpi..


The link I gave you above includes

link wrote:XPI Package

Now that your extension works, you can package it for deployment and installation.

Zip up the contents of your extension's folder (not the extension folder itself), and rename the zip file to have a .xpi extension. In Windows XP, you can do this easily by selecting all the files and subfolders in your extension folder, right click and choose "Send To -> Compressed (Zipped) Folder". A .zip file will be created for you. Just rename it and you're done!


With regard to uploading

  1. Go here
  2. Create an account
  3. You will then be able to access the Developer Hub
  4. Then using the "My Add-ons" tab select "Submit a new add-on" and follow the directions
If approved you will be notified and it will be added; however, I would strongly suggest reading the information in this tutorial since the structure of the xpi package has changed and your submission needs to conform.

Yes. Follow the instructions in the tutorial. Note, having built add-ons if your current add-on doesn't follow the correct install.rdf and chrome.manifest syntax it likely won't be accepted.

Sorry but no, policy is to keep all discussion on the board so everyone can learn. If you are looking for more specific help, after you create an account on the add-on page and go to the Developer Hub, under the Community Tab there is a support forum. You will get much more help there than here; since, it's total focus is builing add-ons.

Create a new text file and put the full path to your development folder inside (e.g. C:\extensions\my_extension\ or ~/extensions/my_extension/). Windows users should retain the OS' slash direction, and everyone should remember to include a closing slash and remove any trailing spaces.

mah extension is on desktop den what should i write in text file?
