WebQA (Stephen)

QA Services (Marcia)

  • Tomcat
    • Internet Download Manager is now blocked on Trunk (Firefox 4) per Bug bug 578443 - was causing a lot of crashes on Beta 1
    • My Community Leadership Summit Report/Recap :


    • Munich Meetups - Summer Break during the Summer Holidays
  • Team Video Status
    • Have individual teams developed ideas for their team videos? If so what topics have been created so far?
      • QA Services Team video likely will be the video footage I shot of Marco doing his Accessibility demo at the Science Fair.
  • Test Days, Bugs Day and Meetups
  • Accessibility:
    • FX4: Tracking regressions from our performance enhancements which crept up when the nightlies were exposed to a more wide audience than just my testing.
    • FX3.6.x: Received some reports that OOPP causes problems with at least one of the commercial screen readers. I didn't see any trouble while testing on my end, but users found sites that do expose problems. Turning OOPP off solves the problems, so it's directly related to electrolysis. Working with the AT vendor and the electrolysis team to nail down problems.

  • Summit: Great feedback from localizers and add-on authors for the crowd extension
