Overall Status

[LANDED] Beta 8: first landed on - 26-05-2017

Testing Summary

Scope of testing

The testing will be focus on

  • verifying that a user can send tabs from any platform to an iOS device that has Firefox and the same account logged in and synced
  • Verifying that an iOS user that has Firefox can receive tabs via Push Notification from other platforms that have Firefox and the same account logged in


Testing will be performed on following devices:

  • iOS Phones
    • fw 9.x
    • fw 10.x
  • iOS Tablet
    • 9.x
    • 10.x


    • Log in with the same Fx account on several devices (one must be an iOS device). Send tabs using the share feature <send to other device> and by selecting the iOS device, the receiver is prompted with a Push Notification containing the tab address
    • This feature can be controlled by the Notifications settings in the iOS's device settings

User stories

  • As a user, I want to be able to send opened tabs to an iOS device and be received as a push notification to go directly to the desired tab.

  • All test cases should be executed
  • All blockers, critical issues must be fixed and verified or have an agreed-upon timeline for being fixed


Beta testing

  • There were no blockers from the server side found while testing this feature.
  • Many of the Client side bugs are still open and unresolved, some of them have a high impact for the feature's functionality.
  • An important piece of information that missed to be delivered is that the AUTO-PUSH should not be working on iOS 9, only for iOS 10 or above,
