To shorten the times for QA while running tests against upcoming Firefox releases, Mozmill is used to run the existent automated tests. Remaining tests have still be run manually but it's getting lesser. Test results are reported to Brasstacks and can be analyzed and synchronized with Litmus later.
Tests which get run for release testing Firefox:
- Smoketests, BFT's, and parts of FFT's against release candidate builds
- Software Update tests against the latest release and the first release of the same branch
In the following both procedures of testing will be described in detail.
