Major Test Areas

Purpose: Hammer on the build and expose all possible trouble spots. We should be looking at things that run right on Tiger but break on Leopard. Keep a version of Tiger running side by side for comparison. Feel free to run the existing test cases in Litmus, or probe by exploratory testing if that works better for you. Please follow the steps in the Leopard Test Plan to report any bugs that you find. Thanks.

BFT Assignment Areas

  • The BFT will be divided up in four sections, with at least 3-4 people helping:
    • Installation - tabbed browsing: (completed) juanb
      • Import bookmarks from Safari broken bug 400193
      • Litmus results under MacPPC
    • Search - microsummaries: (completed) ss/stephend
    • Downloading - cookies: marcia
      • Main issue is inconsistent behavior in saving passwords. This probably needs more investigation. At times, I would not see the saved passwords until restart, other times they would not show at all. I have a stock set of sites including NYTimes,,, etc. I did not file a but on this since other team members could not repro the issue consistently.
    • Security and Certs - software update: juanb/marcia
      • The plugins story is similar to Tiger's.
  • Other Notes:
    • It looks like default buttons are not selected. For example, when you trigger the password manager in Tiger, the "Not Now" button is preselected (blued), but in Leopard the button doesn't glow blue.
    • Firefox doesn't bring itself to the foreground upon automatic restart (after, say, installing a new add-on).
    • Significant bleed-through of webpages when using Litmus in a tab; other pages bleed through, which is odd.
