Will Not Test

Will NOT test

As I understand if from talking with Rob Strong, Windows Vista and XP should exhibit the same types of bugs in the browser space. The area of focus for Vista need to be on the pieces that are touch or work in concert with the OS. Therefore it will not be necessary to do exhaustive testing of browser functionality. We will keep the same strategy we do for all of our major releases and do a thorough full functional test of the release.

Platforms and Configurations

At the time of this writing, Windows Vista ships several different versionS of Vista, including:

  • Vista Ultimate
  • Vista Home Basic
  • Vista Home Premium
  • Vista Business

Parental Controls is not shipped with the lower end versions of Vista, so emphasis should be given to Vista Ultimate and Home Premium to make sure PC is fully covered.

It is not likely that QA will be able to cover all of these editions.

Major Test Areas

Our Test coverage will be a multi-leveled approach:

  • 1. Functional testing and
  • 2. Some stress/boundary/negative tests (depth of functionality):
    • FFT in Litmus run on the Windows Vista platform
  • 3. Ad hoc and regression testing

Functional Testing

  • We will run the Litmus Win Vista specific testing suite.
  • Litmus test cases will be added for any new Vista specific features that are supported.

Stress testing/Negative Testing(depth of functionality):

Due to the fact the Vista is considerably different than XP, we should do a fair amount of negative testing to expose as many Vista-specific issues as possible.

Ad hoc & regression testing

The Mozilla community users will cover some of the Ad hoc testing. Regression testing will cover:

  • QA Verification of Resolved bugs
  • Daily smoketesting of builds

References to Relevant Bugs (not complete)

Fixed Bugs that need to be verified

  • 399381 Support Custom Wizard Images
  • 398434 - Provide option to remove profiles during uninstall -> VERIFIED
  • 393149 - Some registry keys aren't removed under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\ -> VERIFIED
  • 370571 - Ability to install as a standard user on Vista is not available -

Bugs to Keep an eye on

Standard Vista account with Parental Controls turned on cannot launch Firefox]

Litmus test cases added or changed


( Provide some breakdown of the major areas of the feature, how long it will take to develop or run the tests, and an approximate time this will be done.
