Unconfirmed Bugs Testday, Friday March 11th

March 11, 2011

As some of you may already know, we are approaching the RC for Firefox 4.0.  Many bugs have been filed during our Firefox beta run – this is where you come in.  We need your help to sift out any Unconfirmed bugs which may not have been confirmed by the QA team or community.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to make a valuable contribution to Firefox and make it better.  Testing these bugs to see if they are reproducible allows us to make sure Firefox is rock solid for release day and allows us to vet out any regressions which may be hiding in Bugzilla.

Here’s what we will be doing:
•    Download and install the latest Firefox 4 build for your platform and locale
•    Join us on  irc.mozilla.org #testday
•    Go through the list of unconfirmed bugs, which will be posted on the etherpad link.
•    Try to reproduce the bug in Firefox using the reporter’s steps to reproduce
◦    If you can reproduce it, confirm the bug.
◦    If you can’t reproduce it, add a comment in the bug along with your build ID
▪    If you do not have access to confirm a bug, simply add your name and the bug to the list
◦    Be sure to add [fx4-unco-bugday] to the whiteboard field of any bugs you triage
•   The person who verifies the most bugs will get a $50 voucher for Amazon.com

Note: Another thing you can help test today is Personas Plus RC4. See the blog post. The addon is located https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/labs/personas/personas-1.6.2rc4.xpi. Go ahead and jazz up your Firefox RC browser with cool persona and see if it works ok. Any problems please report a bug and add a note to the etherpad listed above.

Don’t worry if you’ve never done anything like this before. We’ll have people from Mozilla QA on hand to answer any questions and to help guide you through process.

If you are interested, please join us on Friday, March 11th!
