Fx 4b3 Test Plan

Firefox 4 beta 3 feature area testing guided by BFTs

In addition to running all the Mozmill BFT automated tests, we'll run BFTs corresponding to areas of high priority using the following BFT test run in Litmus as a guide.

Where there are no related Litmus testcases it is up to the feature owners to test their areas.
