Firefox 3.6 Beta Revision 5 Testplan

Coordinating QA: juanb in, Or ping someone in #qa

Description of Release

This is the fifth revision to Firefox 3.6 Beta. We will be releasing short-cycle beta updates leading up to a final release candidate in the weeks ahead. This revision is of limited scope.

Specific Plan for Beta Revision 5

We will run a brief QA cycle consisting of spot checks based on the smoketests, as well as a few l10n spot checks, and updates tests. The idea is to get these beta revisions out frequently to a larger audience and to get feedback.


We will spot check en-US builds using the Litmus smoketests as a guide, and we'll run some l10n spot checks and updates checks.

All dates tentative:

  • Builds Start: Dec 4
  • QA: Dec 14 (after all-hands week)
    • Smoketests and Other OS Spot Checks: Dec 14 (3 people)
    • l10n spot checks: Dec 14 (3 people)
    • Updates checks: Dec 14-15 (3 people)


Builds for all beta revision 5 candidates can be found here:
