The Mozilla QA team has a large and vibrant community around the world that is deeply involved in our day-to-day activities. Our contributors take an early look at our products, explore new features, file bugs, triage existing bugs, write and execute test cases, automate tests, and provide valuable feedback from a usability perspective. Our most actively engaged contributors take leadership of some of our products or features.

Across the different teams that make up the larger QA team, there are some common tools.
- Community members can help us out with tasks offered through our in-house tool One and Done. You will need to need a Persona ID in order to login and execute tasks.
- We report bugs using our home-grown bug tracking system Bugzilla. You will need to create an account with Bugzilla in order to file bugs and triage them. Learn how to file bugs and triage them.
- Our test cases reside in a repository called MozTrap, also developed in-house. You will need to need a Persona ID in order to login and execute test cases. Learn how to work with Moztrap.
- Community members can get up to speed with our documentation that are on Mozilla Developer Network (MDN). You will need to need a Persona ID only to modify and update documentation.
- Community members can test product features before they are publicly released by participating in test days. You will need to get familiar with IRC, a group chat tool.
Besides these tools, each functional area within Mozilla may require its own set of special tools that you may need to become familiar with.
We take great pride in the contributions made by our community members, most of whom take time out from their daily schedule to help Mozilla move forward with its mission. We love to show our appreciation for the hard work and enthusiasm of our community members in a variety of ways.
