Mozilla Firebird Build Instructions for Windows

Building Mozilla is not a trivial task. There are many ways to build and also many ways to fail. The following page entails the method that I have developed for building Mozilla. Read the tutorial.
The tutorial should be read after following the steps mentioned in my own article
Build Mozilla Thunderbird and/or Mozilla Firebird on Microsoft Windows
The official document on Building Mozilla on the Microsoft Windows platform is not very good. It's a shame. Sometimes too much time is put into the Mozilla code and too little into documentation and PR.
cls thought the official document was good enough for many developers for years. Unfortunately, many regular users get confused and come to MozillaZine's build forums for help.
Yes, we need a good official document. Everyone has their own 2 cents about what's good, though.Comment by alanjstr at September 9, 2003 12:07 AM | Permalink
of course Nilson should have put, 'building on Windows' isn't easy, since building on *nix [ Linux and MacOS X ] is easy : )Comment by cdn at September 9, 2003 12:15 AM | Permalink
