Firefox Accounts Content Server

Build Status: Travis Coverage Status

Static server that hosts Firefox Account sign up, sign in, email verification, etc. flows.

Follow the instructions on: fxa-local-dev

The above link helps to install the following pre-requisites, and set up a development environment.


  • node 0.10.x or 4.2.3+
  • npm
  • Grunt
  • libgmp
  • fxa-local-dev - Please note that this is the preferred way of contributing to Firefox Accounts.

Development Setup

Make sure that fxa-local-dev servers are running. The fxa-content-server will listen on by default.

Note: If you have issues with npm install please update to npm 2.0+ using npm install -g npm@2 (Issue #1594)




  • Run Selenium Server

e.g. in shell form:

java -jar selenium-server-standalone-2.48.2.jar 

To run tests locally with Selenium:

npm test

To change the default auth server edit server/config/*.json on your deployed instance.

  "fxaccount_url": ""

Note that testing with Selenium via Docker does not work at present, so all testing must be carried out via your normal operating system's npm & Java tooling.
