To simplify the life of users or potential contributors.
Can you expand on what you'd like to see? Are you talking about the main page? Or code/dir listing pages? What do you mean by links to sources?

Sure, an example:

We could have 
"Source code / Report a bug"
Flags: needinfo?(sledru)
Still not really clear to me what is the use case you're trying to address. Specifically, if you're on searchfox, you are already browsing the source code - if you are looking to *modify* the code then just blindly pointing to a git/hg repo isn't going to be useful at all, pointing to the instructions on MDN on how to get a dev environment set up would be better.

Bug 1448334 will help wrt reporting bugs.

I am talking about the searchfox sources, not fx :)
That makes a lot more sense then. Thanks for the clarification.

I'm doing this while adding liquid templates for the new pipeline-server stuff. I expect we will experience some iteration on this and then we can back-propagate this into the rust and JS formatting layers.

This has been implemented in bug 1783761 for everything but the source listing pages. They'll get the footer whenever we next do non-trivial changes to source listings so that there's more templating involved in the page structure.
