Firefox 3 Test Plan DRAFT


  • Focus on new features and develop automated tests or manual tests in Litmus
  • Ramp up from smoke tests (old regression tests and new functional tests) to FFTs (old regression and new functional) to peak with the FFTs during the Beta 2 and RC1 test cycles. Then switch back to BFTs on Windows and smoke tests for RC2, RC3 and any respins.

General strategy:

  • Test the following matrix to identify any potential issues
  • Run the suite of Software Update tests in Litmus

Extended Extension testing

The Criteria here is to test all the Recently added extensions, Top Extensions, Recommended Extensions. Then also test roughly the top 10 each of the Newest and Top Rated Extensions. This is a lot! This is a total of 52 extensions. We need community help with this!

The testing of this is not very detailed. The plan is to try out ~3 main features to see if the extension can be installed, used in it basic modes of operation, and uninstalls cleanly.

Anyone helping should either add their results info about what you tested (your name, feature tested, build id, Version string, pass/fail status, and notes) to the

or email results to
