Top Critical issues for QA
This is a working list that QA is using to request be fixed or completed for the Upcoming Fx3 Milestones.
If you have untracked issues in these areas, please enter them here:
- Design still incomplete?
- Major bugs blocking your feature that should be addressed?
- Major bugs blocking overall regression of the trunk that should be fixed before shipping?
Update We've shipped Fx3.0! Next steps is to start tracking 3.1 and 3.0.1 bugs.
The goal of this Overall Test Plan is to lay out our testing strategy, communicate it to others, and track the status.
Major QA Activities:
- Litmus Cleanup
- Litmus Triage Team
- New feature testing - see below
- L10n testing - TBD
- Milestone testing - TBD

L10n Testing with Third Parties
For additional string testing, Mozilla contracts a third party company to utilize language experts with knowledge of Testing. Results are listed in the links here.
In this section, we will roll up all common feedback pulled from external sources that appears common and should be tracked by QA. Feedback sources can include:
- Hendrix Feedback system (mozilla.feedback newsgroups)
