Tegra Test Plan


We will be testing Firefox running on a Windows CE operating system.

There are several challenges with testing this feature:

  • No clear defined wiki page or product document to consult regarding what features should work
    • For example, OGG video does not work but I found out that video is disabled on Windows CE/Mobile for now.
    • Not clear how much network testing will need to be initiated until we get more information.
  • Several areas are still in development, such as software update

    • BFT/Smoketest in Litmus run on the Tegra platform
  • 3. Ad hoc and regression testing

Functional Testing

  • We will run the Tegra specific testing suite.

Stress testing/Negative Testing(depth of functionality):

Ad hoc & regression testing

  • QA Verification of Resolved bugs
  • Weekly smoketesting of builds (subject to availability)
