Test Plan

Strategy

  • Focus on new feeatures and develop automated tests or manual tests in Litmus
  • Ramp up from smoke tests (old regression tests and new functional tests) to FFTs (old regression and new functional) to peak with the FFTs during the Beta 2 and RC1 test cycles. Then switch back to BFTs on Windows and smoke tests for RC2, RC3 and any respins.

Milestone by Milestone plans:

Beta 1 XXX XXX
Beta 2 XXX XXX
RC 1 XXX XXX
RC 2 XXX XXX
RC 3 XXX XXX
Respins XXX XXX

Old Feature Regression testing

  • This testing is accomplished with the old (FFx 1.5) Smoge tests, BFTs and FFTs.
  • We count on the unit tests run from tinderbox after the builds for a great deal of the regresion testing along
  • We also count on Community testing. Bake time on the trunk is important along with our nightly testers and the bi-weekly commnity test days.
  • We run Old BFT weekly
    • BFT Schedule and Results
    • We plan to do this until FF2 stabalizes
      • Primary platform; weekly: Win
      • Secondary platforms; alternate Intel Mac with Linux, PPC Mac every other week.
  • We run JS Test Library
  • We run Security Test Library

New Feature Functional Testing

  • New Feature Test Plans
  • Run new feature tests as code in integrated and at milestones. Generally BFT level functional tests will be ready for Beta 1. FFT level tests will be ready for Beta 2. But this is dependent on when code is ready and info is available to QA. User based tests go into Litmus. Programmatic test are checked into CVS.

L10n Testing

General strategy:

  • Verify trademark issues with info from product management
  • Thorough translation, context and layout testing with a 3rd party service for top locales and supplement with simplistic spot checks in house as needed for last minute checks, etc.
  • Test special regional distributions.

Overall Status of Locales

Detailed L10n Test Plan


Software Update Testing

General strategy:

  • Run update script to identify issues
  • Test the following matrix to identify any potential issues
  • Run the suite of Software Update tests in Litmus
  • Important Note: Alpha2 is missing Talkback

Windows Mac Linux
Alpha1 en-US en-US Fallback
Alpha2 en-US fallback
Alpha3 en-US
Beta1 (digg) One Tier 1 locale
Beta1 (official) One Tier 1 locale One Tier 1 locale fallback

Results

Extended Extension testing

There are some extension tests in the BFTs and FFTs. The extended extension testing goes beyond that to test 5 major classes of extensions:

The Criteria here is to test all the Recently added extensions, Top Extensions, Recommended Extensions. Then also test roughly the top 10 each of the Newest and Top Rated Extensions. This is a lot! This is a total of 52 extensions. We need community help with this!

The testing of this is not very detailed. The plan is to try out ~3 main features to see if the extension can be installed, used in it basic modes of operation, and uninstalls cleanly.

Anyone helping should either add their results info about what you tested (your name, feature tested, build id, Version string, pass/fail status, and notes) to the

or email results to qa@mozilla.org.

Plug-in testing

Extended Top Site testing

Profile Testing

  • Migration from Firefox 1.0, Firefox 1.5.0.x Profiles
    • Need to create a set of profiles and have them available for download
  • Profiles with History
    • Engage community help with this?
  • Profiles with the Top 10 AMO Extensions installed
  • Profiles with recommended extensions installed

Detailed Profile Test Plan

Organized Community Testing

  • Biweekly community test days
  • Weekly community bug days

Special Distributions

  • Y! CJK
  • Google CJK
  • PCHome
  • Seznam

Meeting Notes

Please list if feature is complete for Bon Echo beta. If not, please reference significant bugs that will not be fixed for beta1 or functionality that will not be present

  • Session Restore
    • This feature is in. Most testing is done. BC will complete his test plan by mid day Tuesday (7/11).
  • Tabbed Browsing
    • Adam needs a few more hours to finish BFTs. This should be done by COB today (7/10)
  • RSS Feed Handling
  • Anti-Phishing
  • Visual Refresh
    • Make sure that Mac popup dialog styling bug is addressed when visual refresh is done - bug 340710
  • Search Engine UI
  • In-line Spell Check
    • Not ready yet. brettw@google will let us know.
  • Microsummaries
  • Preferences Panel
    • Areas of Focus
      • Make sure new profiles and all 1.5.0.x profiles work, as well as backwards compatible profiles.
      • See bug 340677 comment 37 for specifics.
    • This is *not* in for B1. Should be there for B2.

Milestone Tasks

Beta 1 Tasks

Beta 2 Tasks

Verifications

mconnor has asked that we verify fixed crash bugs and regressions in Firefox 2.

When you verify the bug is fixed, resolve it as VERIFIED FIXED and replace the fixed1.8.1 keyword with verified1.8.1.

Tips:

  • Some bugs have been verified on 1.8.0 bug still need to be verified on 1.8.
  • If you don't see an easy way to verify that a bug is fixed comment in the bug or add "[needs testcase]" (without quotes) to the bug's Status Whiteboard.

Release Activities

L10n Handoff to Build

  • Axel attaches his recommended shipped-locales file to bug 344295 and requests a review of the attachment
  • QA spot checks those locales
  • Tim r+'s the attachment or adds an updated version based on the testing and r+'s it.
  • Build (Preed) sees the approved review, checks in the shipped-locales file and builds/packaged the final list of locales based on that.

Results

  • Important Note: Alpha2 builds were shipped without Talkback.' This issue was discovered and verified during testing of RC2. Therefore, users that were on the Alpha2 train who update to RC2 will not get talkback in their build.

    • This is overall area is well tested by community
    • Hover state
    • Click state on home button in help viewer
  • RSS
    • Feed preview
  • Preferences Dialog
    • Lot of late changes in this area. Test all the buttons, tabs, controls thoroughly
  • Accessibility
    • General concern
  • Tabbed Browsing
    • Throw tons of tests at the tab strip
    • There should be a warning if > 15 tabs are about to be opened at once

  • Run the suite of Software Update tests in Litmus
Windows Mac Linux
Alpha1 en-US en-US Fallback
Alpha2 en-US fallback
Alpha3 en-US
Beta1 One Tier 1 locale One Tier 1 locale fallback
Beta2 One Tier 1 locale One Tier 1 locale fallback

    • Notes:
      • When loading a site press Stop button while images are loading, and the statusbar won't show "Stopped". At http://www.apple.com, it shows "Waiting for images.apple.com...", at http://www.fishki.net, it shows, e.g., "Transferring data from www.webalta.com" or "Transferring data from ru.fishki.net", on www.cnn.com "Waiting for i.a.cnn.net". Didn't happen on imageshack, photosight.ru. Looks like it happens when data is being loaded from a different server.
