Bugzilla is a web-based general-purpose bugtracker and testing tool. Its Privacy Notice is here.

What data do you receive from my account?

Required Account Data

  • Email address
  • Full Name
  • Hash of your password (“Hashing” means that we can “match” your password when you enter it to log in to your account, but we cannot actually see or read your password.)


Your contributions, comments, filed bugs and other work within Bugzilla are collected and associated with your account.

How do I access my account data?

You can access your account at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/.

How do I update my account data?

You can update your account at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=account.

How do I delete my account data?

You can disable your account at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=account. Your contributions on bugzilla.mozilla.org will still be visible; however, your email address and name will be removed in most locations. We are not able to remove your details that are part of comment text.

How long do you keep my account data?

Because Bugzilla is a bug tracker and testing tool, your contributions and comments history are not deleted when an account is disabled. We don’t remove this information because your comments or contribution history is needed to maintain bug history and allow other users to continue development.

Even though we keep the content, we do change the attribution to “anonymous” rather than your Bugzilla user ID. Once this is done, your contributions and comments can’t be connected to your removed identity.
