The goal of this Overall Test Plan is to lay out testing strategy, results, and tracking for each milestone as it crosses through each channel of the Firefox development process.

All of our releases are tested off of the "Fennec 8.0 Catch-All Test Run" on the Litmus TCM.

For more information about Fennec 8.0, take a look at the mobile team's Feature Planning page.
