The site was founded by Chris Nelson on September 1, 1998 just a few months after Netscape employees and outsiders, but it soon attracted interested observers and end users. On November 14, 1998, MozillaZine merged with MozBin, which brought its webmaster, Jason Kersey, on board. Chris Nelson phased out his involvement with the site from the beginning of 2001 onwards. In May 2002, Alex Bishop became the site's third member of staff. Alex Bishop became less involved with the site in 2007. MozillaZine is currently administrated by Jason Kersey.

In 2009 the MozillaZine news section of the site was dropped due to both a lack of interest and the fact that the open source project was being well covered by both the general and computer press. The home page was changed to reflect this by dropping both the News and Blogs links. MozillaZine is now primarily a support and advocacy site.


MozillaZine offers peer-to-peer support for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Camino, Calender and Mobile. Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey also have three sub-sections called General, used for general discussions of the product, Builds, used for testing, support and discussion of per-release versions of the product, and Bugs, used for discussing possible bugs in the product. The Bugs section should not be used for reporting bugs.

Many theme and extension developers use MozillaZine to host support threads for their own projects. Help for developing add-ons can be found in Extension Development and Theme Development.
