I would like to make some contribution to Mozilla Firefox (with the little C++ I know). Can I build, run and debug Firefox for Linux using WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) ? If yes, should I install anything specific for this (for example: Window systems) ?

  • Thanks for the acceptance! Favour returned question upvoted! (dunno why it attracted a downvote except maybe that the solution is off-topic here) – Fabby Nov 26 '18 at 15:08

No you cannot do that officially.

Yes, there is a way of doing that using XMing but that's a pure Windows solution which is off topic here on Unix&Linux but on-topic on our sister site https://superuser.com.
