Description of Release
This is the latest beta version of Firefox 4. It has a large number of fixes in many areas of the browser, mostly hard blockers for the release.
Specific Plan Beta 11
We will run smoketests and BFTs using Mozmill, and we will complement those with manual checks. Bug verifications or testing around fixes have been ongoing with an emphasis on "hardblocker" bugs. We'll run FFTs on several focus areas as we approach code freeze and candidate builds. We will pay close attention to crash stats and other feedback mechanisms.
We will run through Litmus smoketests, BFTs, and updates checks. We'll focus on regression testing.
