How do I enter?
Can I enter an existing add-on?

What happens with the entries after the contest?
All entries will be promoted on the Mozilla Add-ons site to the more than 100 million people worldwide who are now using Firefox.
How do I create an add-on? What files do I need to submit?
We've compiled a set of Developer Resources as a starting point for building your add-on. Once complete, you must submit a fully compliant extension or theme that is compatible with Firefox 4 for mobile.
Is this contest open to people outside of the United States?

Participants can submit platform specific extensions, though submitting extensions that work on all platforms (i.e. Windows, Mac, and Linux) is highly encouraged.
