I hate to say that I'm not real impressed with the state of tutorials on building Firefox extensions, in part because that seems to imply some sort of incompetence of my own as a coder. I mean, come on, thousands of folks are building and releasing these danged things. It's obviously not rocket science.
But the bottom line is that much of the extension building process is still left in trial and error land where it could easily be put into tutorials. Lots of folk are banging their heads, as far as I can tell, on the same stuff, and there just isn't a large enough community to put all those individual lessons learned together for the collective to benefit from.
Here's some fun.
The best XUL and Firefox extension building code probably comes from Add-on Builder. Slap in your description, etc, and select it all. It'll create a toolbar, button for your main toolbar, a menu item in tools, even a context-menu (the one that's typically displayed when you right-click a web-page displayed in Firefox) for you. Voila. Perfect. 90% done.
Then we learn most of the important stuff from this thread at Mozillazine.
I pasted this into ff-sidebar.xul based mostly off of the info at the above link:
// Get the sidebar that's currently displayed in the browser.
Ah, sweet proof of concept success.
But that's the start. And I thought I'd left behind the craptasticness of model building when I took a Java break. No such luck.
