General Info & Status

QA Tasks

Firefox Test Plan <-- MoCo QA tasks and results are here.

In order to get more coverage on fixes going in for Firefox, we need the community to help test the latest RC candidates or nightly "-mozilla1.8.0" branch builds while looking at the current list of fixed1.8.0.7 bugs (excluding XForms bugs). Here are a few ways to help:

  • BFTs & Regression Testing: Running through a set of BFTs on Litmus is the best way to test basic functionality and explore various areas for regressions.
  • Extensions & Themes Testing: Install and use some of your favorite extensions and themes. Try a few new ones from to make sure everything works as expected.

Community testing and feedback will be managed through the QA Blog and the Newsgroup, so keep an eye out for posts and discussions there!
