  • Mozilla Firefox: Our next generation browser will simplify and speed up your browsing experience.
  • Thunderbird: Our next generation standalone e-mail and newsgroup client can be used as a companion to Mozilla Firefox or by itself. Lightweight, fast, extensible and featuring sophisticated junk mail filters, Thunderbird sets a new standard for e-mail software.

We are a software development tools provider

The tools we've built to develop and manage our own projects power hundreds of open source projects.

  • Bugzilla: the Mozilla bug tracking webtool to help you track progress in fixing bugs and implementing features that affect your applications.
  • Bonsai: a web interface to the checkin log that you can query for checkins between certain dates, of certain files, or by certain developers.
  • Tinderbox: our 24/7 build and test webtool that constantly builds, tests, and reports on the Mozilla application suite on multiple platforms so you can see the state of the application at any given point in time.

We are an open source community of developers and testers
