Following Accessibility-related pages on developer.mozilla.org has non-working links or outdated information that should be updated or removed.

1) https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Accessibility_FAQ 

* Link "Firefox's Built-in Accessibility Features" linking to http://accessfirefox.com/FxBuiltInFeatures.html (404) - can link to http://www.accessfirefox.org/Firefox_3_Accessibility_Features.php instead.
* Link "Assistive Technology Compatibility" linking to http://kb.mozillazine.org/Assistive_technology_compatibility VERY outdated - can link to SUMO article http://support.mozilla.com/da/kb/Assistive+technology+compatibility instead.

2) https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Accessibility/XUL

* All links in the "AT API" section are dead and goes to the MDC front page.

3) https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL_accessibility_tool

* Link to XPI in section "Availability" points to long-dead xulplanet website.

4) https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL_accessibility_guidelines

* Link to "Technology Compatibility" in section "Learn More" > "Accessibility" seems mixed up.

5) http://www.mozilla.org/access/toolkit-checklist

* In section "The Approaches" a link to "XUL" points to long-dead xulplanet website.

6) https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Building_accessible_custom_components_in_XUL

* In section "Introduction" a link to https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Tabbox just goes to MDN front page.
* All following XPI links are (naturally) wildly outdated.
* There are a number of dead XULPlanet links in the rest of the article.
* There are several dead links (ex: http://www.mozilla.org/access/dhtml/#roles ) in the following text which goes to http://wiki.codetalks.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page - may be best alternative thou.

7) http://www.mozilla.org/access/users

First section states that FF 2 help via F1 key gives "Accessibility Features" help, but in FF 3+ this points to SUMO. Users may find this rather confusing. The following 4 links are all very excellent, but a link to AccessFirefox.com on SUMO would be even more helpful. Also note that besides the linked SUMO article, there are another 3 high quality articles on SUMO: "Accessibility", "New Accessibility features in Firefox 3" and "Firefox 3 with Screen Readers FAQ".
