For further information on localization, please visit the L10n wiki. For further information on MoFo QA, please visit our QA wiki.

Below are quick checklists when certifying localized builds for release. It's important to note that such certification does not include the following, due to limited resources:

  • quality of translation
  • coverage of every string throughout the UI
  • behavior/functionality of everything

Contents

For Firefox

  • installation, new profile, migration
  • default homepage to Google start page for new profiles
  • search bar: Google and Yahoo (unless otherwise approved by Marketing) must be listed 1st and 2nd, respectively
  • About dialog: date, version
  • Help window should appear, although not necessarily localized
  • Themes / Extensions dlg (just ensure they appear, with Themes listing the default)
  • Bookmarks: NO "crew picks"! But other locale-specific ones are acceptable
  • sidebar: history / bookmarks
  • go to another webpage
  • Preferences/Options window: check that each category panel displays properly —there shouldn't be XML errors or fields too narrow to display content even after resizing
  • view source
  • quickly go through menu items and/or couple of context menus
  • find toolbar
  • check for Talkback, located under <install_location>/extensions/talkback@mozilla.org/

For Thunderbird

  • installation, new profile, migration
  • all basic windows:
    • main 3pane
    • mail compose
    • mail standalone
    • view source
    • address book; also check AB card dialog
  • Ensure that you can read and send messages
  • About dlg: date, version
  • Account Central: appears in the right pane when an account is selected from the folder pane
  • default mail start page (new profiles; accessed from Go > Mail Start Page): localizers can translate the content and point to localized content where appropriate, but using the en-US content and links is acceptable. Make sure this start page is chrome://messenger/content/start.xhtml. Tools / Options / General will show you this information.
  • Themes / Extensions dialogs: just ensure they appear, with Themes listing the default theme
  • Mail Account Settings dialog: check that each category/account panel displays properly —there shouldn't be XML errors or fields too narrow to display content even after resizing (if resizing is possible)
  • Preferences/Options window: check that each category panel displays properly —there shouldn't be XML errors or fields too narrow to display content even after resizing
  • quickly view menu items and/or couple of context menus
  • check for Talkback
