Read this page.
(And don't forget to make your extension compatible with other gecko browsers...)

First get your hands dirty:

What files does an extension use:

And then the real works, with these two books which are also made available for free online:

Extensions for Firefox (and the Mozilla platform in general) are developed using javascript as the scripting language and XUL as the UI building markup language.

To see what the source of an extension looks like:
- look for an extension, but instead of installing it use right click -> "Save target as..." to save it.
- unzip the .xpi file using winzip or 7zip
- now you have the basic folder structure, but it includes one or more .jar files. Unzip them too using winzip.
- look at the different files containing javascript, XUL or RDF.
