QA activities

New feature readiness

All new features tested by QA and shipping with Firefox 68 are available here.

The feature testing process followed by QA is available here.

Bug fix verification

  • Daily verification of uplifted bugs - these are uplifts, triaged daily and verified under ~48hrs
  • Ongoing verification of Nightly bugs - this is the general bug verification done throughout the Nightly cycle; it sometimes overlaps with uplifts verification; also involves active monitoring of qe-verify? bugs
  • Ongoing verification of Beta bugs - this is the general bug verification done throughout the Beta cycle; it sometimes overlaps with uplifts verification; also involves active monitoring of qe-verify? bugs
  • On-demand verification of bugs - these are special requests (ideally coming in through PI, but also through Bugzilla needinfo?, chat or emails)
  • Periodical verification of security bugs - these are post-critsmash bugs, triaged and verified ~every 2wks

Unconfirmed bug triage

This is the triage conducted by Engineering QA.

Security bug triage

This is the post-CritSmash triage conducted by Engineering QA (on Nightly) and Release QA (on Beta, Release, ESR).

Bug investigation

This is the daily check and investigation of new regressionwindow-wanted bugs, conducted by Engineering QA and Release QA.
