Testing Summary

Scope of testing

The testing will be focus on

  • Ensure that desktop browser visits don't over-run the mobile Top Sites thumbnails
  • Ensure mobile visits are given priority on the mobile Top Sites page


Testing will be performed on following devices:

  • Phones
    • 4.x
    • 5.x
    • 6.0
  • Tablet
    • 4.x
    • 5.x
    • 6.0


  • Browsing on the desktop and mobile often have two very different usage patterns, and even though a user has attached both to a single Firefox Account, Firefox should preserve that usage pattern to ensure the sites visited on the mobile are within easy reach (and vice versa on the desktop)
    • how to use it
  • screenshots

User stories

  • As a user, I do not want my Top Sites on mobile to have desktop-related sites upon first-run sync integration.
AC: After a sync, sites frequented on the mobile are still given top priority on Top Sites
  • As a user, I want to easily go to my oft-used mobile websites from my mobile phone and not have to hunt & peck through a sea of desktop-related content
AC: After a sync, sites frequented on the mobile are still given top priority on Top Sites

Acceptance Criteria

 4. On mobile side Log in the account that was synced on desktop at step 2
Expected Result:
