Where do I start?

Ok, I am in the channel, now what?

The easiest thing to do...

  • Use it to access your e-mail for the day. Send/receive, etc.
  • Mac OS X testers: test around Bug 365755
  • For locales that don't ship a dictionary by default test around the experience for a new profile for Bug 367533. We really need extra l10n testing help here!
  • Test around moving & copying messages between local folders in order to verify Bug 368112.
  • Test around message filters especially mail filters that filter on HTML in the message body for 378147.

If you want to do more...

  • Go to Litmus, our test tracking system.
    • Try running a smoketest on any of the builds.
    • Try running through any number of Basic Functional Tests (BFTs)

If you discover a bug or regression that you feel is critical, please let us know on the #testday IRC channel ASAP!

Where do I find Litmus?

  • log in and then select run tests
  • You can do a smoketest or a Basic Functional Test, it is entirely up to you!

How do I file bugs?

First of all, let one of the moderators know so they can check if it is already a known problem. Then they can guide you to either provide more details, update an existing bug or file a new bug. If filing a new bug, please do a quick check to see if the bug already exists. This can easily be done by searching for the error message, window name, or some over identifing feature of the bug.

How do I send feedback?
