Nightly build bug team

Hello! If you'd like to help out with bug management for Nightly builds, please read this page and try out the tutorial at http://www.tizianasellitto.it/trainingmontage/bugzilla-triage-tutorial.html.

Every night the latest pre-release version of Firefox is made available. If you want to test against the cutting edge of Firefox, download the Nightly build and use it as your main browser. If you find any bugs, file them. (How to File a Bug).

You may also be interested in looking at the bugs others have filed, and see if you can replicate them or add any useful information. Triaging the Nightly bugs will help us catch important bugs as quickly as possible!

1. Download the Nightly build and run it.
2. Make a bugzilla account.
3. Skim over the current bugs against the Nightly release (currently, 62 branch).
4. Triage through the list of UNCONFIRMED Nightly bugs. So helpful!
--- replicate the bug, comment, and confirm it
--- needinfo the bug reporter to get more details
--- regression testing with the mozregression tool

For example, the current release version of Firefox is 60.0.2. The Beta version is 61, and the Aurora version is 54. That means the Nightly build is 62. The bugs filed against that release are listed as being in the 62 branch of Firefox.
