The dist/bin dir is where everything is after a build (with the exception of embed_lite.dll in embedding/lite if you need embedding components and nsmozax.dll | activex.js | nsAxSecurityPolicy.js | nsIMozAxPlugin.xpt are in embedding/browser/activex/src/plugin if you built with activex support).

Unstickying this. I don't think I'll provide any build instructions after all since the <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/build.html">developer page</a> for Firefox has this already. My site should focus on end-user stuff anyway.

I just want to say, i tried building firefox a couple months a ago. I tried and failed a few times. Then I stopped for a while, but i have NOT given up yet.

I will be back!!

That's all. Thanks for reading. :)

I get this error on build

Are there any files in the tools/trace-malloc directory ? Those sort of errors are common if files are missing. There doesn't seem to be anything in the nightly source tarball for mozilla.

Use this command to get the files from the CVS repository (trunk):
<code>cvs co mozilla/tools/trace-malloc</code>
in the parent directory of the source.
