Feature Description

Developer QA Review

The QA person responsible for the feature should hold a formal interview with the lead developer or feature champion. Below are questions that should be asked in the interview:

  • Do we have automated tests for the feature?
  • What do they cover?
  • What do they not cover?
  • How well do they cover the feature?
  • What are the important areas we should focus on?
  • What are the dependencies?
  • What is our comfort level with this feature in its current state?
  • What feedback would you like from QA?

Feature Test Items Details


  • Details of feature localization test requirements



  • Keyboard accessibility: Test that all actions can be performed through the keyboard, without the use of a mouse. Items can either be interacted with directly (buttons to perform actions, for example), or be accessed through a popup/context menu of any given item. Success is met when all interactive items can be tabbed to and all features are reachable through either an interactive control or the context menu of an item.
  • Themeing testing: Is the UI still fully readable if the operating system's theme is changed to high-contrast, inverted colors etc? Success is met when all controls are still readable in interactive and noninteractive states when changing the operating system's color scheme.
  • Screen reader exposure: Are all controls and items exposed with all available information to screen readers? Success is met when all controls speak with their name and control type (like button etc.).



  • Details of plugins compatibility test requirements



  • Details of addons compatibility



  • Details of top internet sites test requirements


Feature Tests Details

To test all of the new features which will come with Firefox 4 we have setup a test plan which can be found on Google Spreadsheets.

Automated Tests Details

Developer Tests

Mozmill Tests

If a particular feature needs manual tests which should also be covered by Mozmill tests please add the "[mozmill-test-needed]" whiteboard entry to the feature implementation or regression bug.

List of Mozmill Tests:

  • Links to automated mozmill feature test cases


Manual Tests Details

Areas which cannot be tested by our automated test harnesses will need a good set of manual tests on Litmus. We cover those tests in a Google Spreadsheet.
