Steps to reproduce:

Following Getting Set Up To Work On The Firefox Codebase and then going to Firefox Contributors’ Quick Reference.

Actual results:

Firefox Contributors' Quick Reference doesn't specify that if you finished getting set up you do not need to Hg clone the source code again. So new contributors can get confused when following these instructions.

Expected results:

Should have a note to skip that step if you already have a firefox setup working.

Component: Firefox Source Docs: Content → Build Documentation
Product: Developer Infrastructure → Firefox Build System

Note that asks you to skip that step if you have a working firefox build.
