L10n UI Focus Areas for Localizers

The following features in Firefox 4.0 beta 4 will be the user interface features needing the most testing by your team:

  • Add-Ons Manager
    • Description: Firefox 4 developers aim to implement a way for addons to integrate into Firefox UI in a way that plays nicely with themes, allows maximum customizability, and eases implementation for addon developers.
    • To view the new Add-Ons Manager, type "about:addons" in the URL bar. Here you will see the new UI for the add-ons manager. There are several items to look at here:
      • Translations and dialogues size for the side panel items
        • Get Add-ons
        • Languages
        • Extensions
        • Themes
        • Plugins
  • Switch to Tab
    • [ Description: When an awesomebar result matches the URL of an already open tab, it should indicate that and allow the user to switch to that tab instead of duplicating it.
    • To test this
        1. Open up several tabs in your Firefox 4 beta
        2. Copy a URL for one of your open tabs
        3. Open a new tab and paste the URL
        4. Awesome Bar will show a "Switch to Tab" (yours will be translated) UI in the results
        5. Check for any dialogue size issues or other localization bugs
    • The development team created a test plan for their UI that you can review. Note, this test plan tests functionality, not localization.
  • Tabs on Top
    • Description and Mockups - In Firefox 4, tabs are given top visual priority for more efficient and intuitive browsing.
      • To view the "Tabs on Top" feature, go to the menu item View > Customize > "Tabs on Top"
      • Ensure the menu items are properly translated, functional, and viewable
      • Review the tabs UI and compare it to mockups above, noting any major differences that might occur in the localization
  • Firefox button (re-uses many strings from Firefox Menu Bar)
    • Description: In Firefox 4 for Windows Vista and Windows 7, all menu items are in a single button for easy access and reduced clutter.
    • On Windows 7 and Windows Vista, click on the new Firefox Button to see the redesign of all menu items.
    • Click through on all menu items to see any localization errors, noting especially any dialogue size problems
    • A very spartan project description created by the dev team is here
  • Feedback button/Test Pilot
    • Description: Beta builds will ship with Test Pilot and a Feedback button integrated into the build, which will allow us to get feedback from beta users.
      • Click on the Feedback button, and submit any feedback.
      • Try all other functionality within the Feedback button and make sure it is localized.
      • Pay close attention to button and menu item descriptions fitting the space.
      • (website) Example: - Is it localized for your locale? Try out its functionality.

L10n Spot Checks (Mozilla QA)

We will spot check one tier 1 locales per platform. Please check with QA lead or l10n driver should there be new locales in this release.

If you file a bug, please add "[4b4]" without the quotes on the Whiteboard field so we can query the bugs filed during this testing cycle.

Windows 7 (juanb, gmontagu)

  • es-AR - gmontagu: PASS
    • Build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b4) Gecko/20100818 Firefox/4.0b4
    • Notes: The localization issues I found in beta 3 are fixed. No functionality issues.
  • ja - juanb: in progress
    • Build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b4) Gecko/20100818 Firefox/4.0b4
    • Notes: Some Firefox Sync strings still need to be translated, but functionality-wise, I found no issues.

Windows XP (juanb)

  • locale: pt-BR
    • Build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b4) Gecko/20100818 Firefox/4.0b4
    • Notes: No issues found.

Mac (tester)

  • he: Pass
    • Notes: Tested for comparison with Windows builds. In general Hebrew builds on Mac and Linux look in much better shape than on Windows, but there are still a few things that need addressing, a lot of small things. For example, when you launch Fx on Mac you eventually get the Feedback notification notice, on the left side, but it doesn't seem consistent.

Linux (juanb)

  • pl: Pass
    • Build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0b4) Gecko/20100818 Firefox/4.0b4
    • Notes: No issues noted.

RTL and IME (juanb)

  • he - Fail
    • Build ID: he on Windows 7
    • Notes: We tried using Hebrew builds on Windows and it's not usable. Other RTL builds suffer the same problems. These problems are mostly on Windows. Linux and Mac look ok.

Issues Found

  • RTL builds have problems. "he" is a beta locale we ship, and it is difficult to use on Windows 7. It will not be advertised in the all-beta page for Windows when Fx4b4 is released.
