Fx 4 RC Test Plan

Top Sites Testing

Tomcat runs an automated test suite that checks for crashes on page load for the top 20k sites on an on-going basis. When there's a problem it's usually a crasher bug and Tomcat files those.

  • For beta 10, 11, 12 and RC we ran a series of tests using top sites in different categories, like banking, social sites, news, entertainment, video sites, etc... bugs were filed against issues and existing issues were noted. There's nothing outstanding from those reports. These tests were run by uTest and the roll-up for those results can be found here.
  • We also ran a couple of events during Cantina afternoons and while we found a few issues, none of those bubbled up. We tested social games, Zynga, as well as popular video sites. Issues found during testing at cantinas.
