Extended Testing

We have to perform tests with user profiles containing mail in different accounts, rss feeds, newsgroups, saved passwords, preferences, extensions and themes compatible with 200x, and extensions and themes not compatible with 200x. Think of a typical user profile. After the major update the user profile should be kept, and during the update, the extensions and themes should be checked for compatibility.
