This is high level guide on how to contribute to Firefox Quality Assurance as an Active Contributor. Read on if you are a Firefox user and are interested in participating as an Active Contributor. If this doesn't seem to be the right volunteer level for you, each level of contribution is generally outlined at Firefox QA Community.

What is there to do?

There is prolific growth in and production from the Mozilla Development Community. Mozilla QA could use your help to keep up with that growth and production. Firefox QA is one area where you can make an impact. What follows are ways to take action and make an impact at each of the higher levels of the Firefox QA Community.

Active Firefox QA

Make a bigger impact by taking part directly with regular Firefox QA activities. The main bullets represent contributor pathways to learn about, grow your skills in and actively contribute to Firefox QA. The time and effort for an active contributor is elevated quite a bit above a casual contributor. Your contribution time can be as much or as little as you'd like, but probably at least a few hours per week.

  • Get comfortable installing and using Desktop Firefox from Firefox builds across all Channels; Nightly, Aurora, Beta, Release and ESR.



  • Join us in IRC: #testday on and run Moztrap tests or run them when you can.
  • Pick a Priority One feature to contribute to. <- each P1 feature owner is on the hook to make sure their feature test plan has a community involvement section.
