Automation

BFTs

Triage the Mozmill dashboard for test failures and debug for potential Firefox regressions.

  • Lead: Vlad Maniac (Softvision)
  • Peer: Alex Lakatos (Softvision)
  • Failure Status: NEW (12) | ASSIGNED (7) | FIXED (3) | REGRESSIONS (0)
  • Tasks:
    • Check the Mozmill dashboard for failing tests for the day
    • Cross reference any failure to the list of NEW and ASSIGNED bugs
      • If the bug is NEW, assign it to yourself and try to fix it
      • If the bug is ASSIGNED and there has been no activity on the bug in over a week, offer your assistance to fix the bug
      • If there is NO bug on file, file it using this template
    • If you need assistance, ask ashughes in the #mozmill channel

Endurance

Performed during NIGHTLY phase only

Triage and report the performance numbers from the daily Endurance tests.

  • Lead: Vlad Maniac (Softvision)
  • Peer: Alex Lakatos (Softvision)
  • Endurance reports
  • Spreadsheet for tracking results
  • NOTE: Report any spikes in performance degradation to the QA release driver
Analysis (20110722 - 20110815)
  • Windows Memory Usage: +15.58% (77MB -> 89MB)
  • Mac Memory Usage: +3.27% (153MB -> 158MB)

Features

Track features which have landed in Firefox 8 and are ready to be tested (spreadsheet)

Feature

Description of feature

  • Leads: Person (role)
  • QA Owner: Owner
  • Status: Status
  • Links: Feature page, test plan, tracking bug, etc
  • Notes:

Tab move detach animations

When dragging tabs on the tab bar, we should show the tab and animate when you rearrange them, instead of showing a placeholder indicator like we currently do. We should also show a thumbnail of the page on detach operations, and make sure we have a good threshold, so this isn't triggered accidentally.

There are regressions and the team backed this change out for Firefox 8. The changes have been verified. The feature was backed out without other regressions.

Third Party Add-on Warnings

We currently do not provide adequate warning to users that new third-party provided add-ons have been installed. This project will ensure that users opt-in to all add-ons that aren't installed through the Firefox UI. This feature falls primarily in the Experience category (from the "Discover, Experience, and Connect" vision statement.)

  • Leads: Asa Dotzler (Product), Dave Townsend (Feature, Lead), Curtis Koenig (Security lead), Jennifer Boriss (UX Lead)
  • QA Owner: Vlad Maniac (:vladmaniac)
  • Status: Complete. Health: OK - Feature Landed.
  • Links: Feature Page, Tracking Bug Test Plan
  • Notes:

People Search

Users can currently search for general web content, ecommerce items, and reference material, but they cannot search for people. We should add some form of People search to our search list. Twitter search is probably a good first step.

Confirm add-ons on upgrade

Then next time existing users upgrade Firefox they should be presented with a list of add-ons they have installed where they can choose to disable them. By default add-ons from third-parties which may have been installed without the users' knowledge will be disabled. This replaces the compatibility wizard for that one time upgrade, subsequent upgrades use the compatibility wizard still.
This feature falls primarily in the Experience category (from the "Discover, Experience, and Connect" vision statement.)

  • Leads: Justin Scott (Product), Dave Townsend (Feature, Lead), Curtis Koenig (Security lead), Alex Faaborg (UX Lead)
  • QA Owner: Vlad Maniac (:vladmaniac)
  • Status: Complete. Health: OK - Feature Landed.
  • Links: Feature Page, Tracking Bug, Test Plan
  • Notes:

Expose prefs for tabs-on-demand

Firefox 4 has the hidden ability to load tabs on-demand by setting the maximum number of concurrent tabs being restored to "0" — now that the feature has been in the wild for a while, we'd like to expose it as the default behavior for session restore. It makes startup a lot faster, and uses a lot less memory.
This feature falls primarily in the Experience category (from the "Discover, Experience, and Connect" vision statement.)

  • Leads: Asa Dotzler (Product), Alex Limi (Feature), Paul O'Shannessy (Lead Engineer)
  • QA Owner: Mihaela Velimiroviciu
  • Status: Complete. Health: OK - Feature Landed.
  • Links: Feature Page, Tracking Bug, Test Plan
  • Notes:

Silent Update: Reduce Displayed UI

To reduce update fatigue, don't display application update download and notifications user interface unless necessary.
Twelve hours after an update is downloaded the user is told to restart Firefox by the display of the application update user interface. Instead of always notifying after twelve hours and possibly interrupting the user the notification should only be displayed when it is important for the user to apply the update (e.g. when the update contains an important security fix the user should be notified). From analyzing crashes (questionable source), approximately 15% of users run Firefox longer than 12 hours and would be affected (see bug 659425 for details).
This feature falls primarily in the Experience category (from the "Discover, Experience, and Connect" vision statement.)

  • Leads: Chris Lee (Product), Lawrence Mandel (Directly Responsible individual), Tim Taubert (Lead Engineer), Lucas Adamki (Security Lead), Alex Limi (UX Lead)
  • QA Owner: Paul Silaghi
  • Status: In progress. Health: OK
  • Links: Feature Page, Test Plan, Tracking Bug
  • Notes:

Input

The following are the details of daily triage conducted on http://input.mozilla.org.

Dark Matter Addons

(re: bug 693698) -- Using this spreadsheet -- test on 32-bit Windows only -- use this etherpad to record your results

  • Pick an add-on and record it's name and URL from the spreadsheet to the etherpad
  • Go to the URL and install the software package
    • The notes will give you a hint of what to look for
    • There's some non-free software there, so we won't be able to get to all of them
  • Once the software is installed, start Firefox
    • Firefox may need to be closed to install some of the software packages
  • Open about:support and look for the name and ID of the new add-ons
    • They should be recorded in the GUID section
  • Look for the registry keys specified in this article
    • If there are registry keys for the add-on, enter Registry in the Installed in column
    • If not, look in Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/extensions -- if the add-on is there, enter App Dir in the Installed in column
    • If not, look in %Profile-Folder%/extensions -- if the add-on is there, enter Profile in the Installed in column

Add notes if you have any problems getting to the extension or getting it installed in Firefox, or if additional add-ons are being installed by a single package. Anything that gives us an idea of why an add-on couldn't be tested, or other add-ons we should be concerned about.

If you have any questions, please contact Andrew Williamson (eviljeff) on IRC in the #amo or #amo-editors channel.

Updates

The following are details of update verifications for Firefox 8 beta 3

Betatest:

  • run some manual exploratory tests around updating with add-ons, plugins, session/profile data, etc
  • How to set update channel to betatest:
    • Find the defaults/prefs/channel-prefs.js file in your Firefox application folder
    • Open it with a text editor and change the "beta" channel to "betatest", save and exit
    • Start Firefox and check app.update.channel in about:config to verify it changed
