2. Introduction

Mozilla is an Open Source, cross-platform, browser and graphical application environment. It is rapidly becoming a significant component on many Linux-based desktops due to its stability, robust feature-set, large developer-base, and ease of configuration. This Mini HOWTO addresses how to patch and configure Mozilla's source to better optimize it for Linux desktop environments, and is intended to serve as a general set of instructions for the Linux community on how to compile and configure Mozilla.
