Firefox 3.5 BetaPreview Test Results

This is a precursor build for RC1. We are calling it a Beta Preview because its got nearly the last bits of code, but not quite ready for RC1. Please test this build like its another beta, but know that its stable enough to be an RC.

Smoketest Testing

Lite verification tests (or smoketests) will be first ran when the builds are ready. Tests are available on litmus under the Firefox 3.5 test suite. In any case the Smoketests result, we will raise blockers asap before proceeding with the bfts.

Please record your detailed results in the section below.

Updates Testing

We will be doing updates of all Alpha/Beta users to BetaPreview. We will be checking complete updates, and failover scenarios.

Will be available on betatest, releasetest, and beta channels.

Testcases and Results are tracked here.

L10N

Visual inspection: Go through the P1 list of locales, and run a spotcheck to see if everything visually looks fine. Refer to Fx3.5 L10N Requirements for more specifics.

Testcases and Results are tracked here.

Staging/Live Spotchecks & Webpages

1) Verify the following webpages that gets pushed to staging and then to the live sites. Look for content messaging, spelling mistakes, broken links & imnages, etc..

  • Firstrun page ([Staging link])
  • Whatsnew Page ([Staging link])
  • Releasenotes page ([Staging link])

2) Check live site download links on all platforms. Please cover en-US, and 2 or 3 additional Tier 1 locales as well. Pay attention to the following areas:

  • Check for signed installer and applications (windows only)
  • Firstrun page, whatsnew page, Home page, Search plugin
  • Install, uninstall
  • General spotchecks and browser functionality
  • Confirm Build IDs

Additional Resource Testing

Given the minimized focus testing around BetaPreview due to time constraints, there are a few regression areas that will need some focus testing. This area will call for additional resources to help QA in this effort to ship BetaPreview in a timely manner.

Fixed Bugs Verifications

The following bugs are fixed for BetaPreview and need verifications:

Testday

A BetaPreview testday will be held and call for the community support to assist with testing. Activities include executing litmus testcases, bug verifications, and focus on the new feature areas that are being implemented. More can be found on QMO.
