Task: write a document that describes:

  • What is a Firefox Extension?

An extension is a small program developed to add extra functionality to Firefox. It is downloaded and installed separately from the actual Firefox application. Currently most Firefox extensions end in the .xpi file extension. Because they are extra addon programs, Firefox allows the user to disable or uninstall each addon separately.

Developing addons usually requires programmers to target a specific major version of Firefox as it is not guaranteed to work across future releases.

  • What is a Firefox Theme?

Themes are skins that allow you to change the look and feel of the browser and personalize it.

Themes are like new clothes for your Firefox. A theme can change only a few colors, or every piece of Firefox's appearance. It's another great way to personalize Firefox to your tastes.
