Begin testing April 20th
Finish testing as much as possible ~May 15th
Absolutely must be ready to ship by May 28th

What to test:

  1. Run through the pages for each available/completed locale
  2. Make sure that the pages look OK in Right To Left languages, which are:
    1. he, ar, fa
  3. Make sure that if we display a Download Now box somewhere, the box is big enough for the translated text
  4. If we have a screenshot, see if it makes sense to have it localized (Firefox interface and web page displayed)
    1. Tier one locales should have:
      1. Localized text
      2. Localized websites in the screenshot
      3. Worry about seeing Windows Vista screenshots primarily, but check for Mac screenshots on the tier 1 locales
    2. Tier two locales:
      1. To prioritize, ensure that their firstrun and whatsnew pages are localized first
    3. Tier three locales:
      1. Best effort, as time allows (tier three list)
  5. See if all links work correctly, we often provide redirects to Mozilla Europe/Japan/China for pages like the release notes
  6. Testing of any locale fallback mechanism we put on the pages, make sure that we do not send people to non-translated resources if we have a translated one
  7. Ensure XHTML Strict 1.0 validation
    1. W3C validator
  8. Localized page titles
