As an add on developer am I able to get access to "open source" code? If so to whom do I apply? In particular I would like to see the code which collects the user name and password and passes it back to the password manager. If this has unrestricted access I would like to know where to access it.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can see all the Firefox code via the MXR website, but only the latest versions of all branches and not for such an old Firefox 13 version that you currently run.

This was a great help. However I do not see how to access the firefox-25.0.1.bundle and so I do not know what is in this file.

You can browse the Firefox source code online via the MXR and DXR websites than easily allows to search for data and possibly backtrack code changes to bugs via the annotations.

The Password Manager has this chrome URL in Firefox;

chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul

A search for this file on MXR for the release branch:

The latest code is on mozilla-central


You need an archive manager that can handle tar.bz2 archive files to access the source code locally.
You can look at 7-zip if you do not have one.
