Firefox 3.5rc3 Test Plan

Description of Release

We are addressing several bugs in video playback, tab drag and drop, and other miscellaneous critical bugs. This release candidate will be available through the all-beta download page, and it will be offered in the form of software updates to our beta users on 3.5x.

Specific Plan for RC3

We are going to run smoketests, l10n spot checks, updates checks and we are going to verify the bugs that landed for this release. In addition we are going to run sections of the full functional tests that are touched by the fixes that landed. These include tabbed browsing (including drag&drop) and video playback controls.

Given that we took the fix for bug 499169 we are having someone check if the browser loads the URLs where people were reporting crashes. This is on-going as of 6/24 evening PDT.


In flux. We will very likely get builds today (Tue 6/23). We will then run smoketests, verifications, and focused tests for a couple of days before offering updates later this week. (As it happens, we are releasing updates Wednesday night 6/24).

  • Verifications: Henrik (whimboo)
  • Smoketests: abillings, ashughes, marcia, juanb
  • FFTs: see section
  • l10n checks: tchung
  • Updates checks: aakashd, aaronmt, juanb


As of 6/24 the latest is build2 and it can be found here:
