Top Plugins Testing
Query the top plugins supported for the web, and verify they are compatible with Firefox 3. See AMO list for recommended plugins.
Additional Plugin litmus cases can be found here.
For b4, we will be doing updates of all Alpha and Beta users to Beta 4. Tests will include different locales for beta 1, but only en-US for all past versions. We will be checking partial updates, complete updates, and failed status.
Will be available on betatest, releasetest, and beta channels
Testcases and Results are tracked here.
L10N P1 Spotchecks
Visual inspection: Go through the P1 list of locales, and run a spotcheck to see if everything visually looks fine. Refer to L10N Requirements for more specifics.
Automation inspection: supported locales will be ran through Minotaur, and results will be reviewed by axel and mic.
P1 Locales to be tested:
Testcases and Results are tracked here - PASS.
Special Respin Tests
A build issue was found late in the game, and required a respin to all the Windows builds. This was due to a late discovery that PGO or Profile Guided Optimization, was late to be included into the build bits.
A special testplan was created to verify these bits. See Testplan here.
Bugs that are marked RESOLVED FIXED that are checked in for beta. Please verify them.
A beta 4 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.
Testday results are posted here.
Enter results from testing here.
Live Spot Checks

Windows XP -> abillings - PASS
Mac Leopard -> Marcia - see results below
