Firefox 3: issues for final ship


Localization

  • l10n of new mozilla.com underway – requirements are webbugs, total open bugs are in () in the Web bugs column


QA Status/Topics

  • General QA (tchung)

    • RC2 targeting 6/4. Planned testing is completed, and we’ll be using the extra day to cover feedback, webpages, bug verifications, and focus areas. See testplan for latest updates.

    • Notable bugs found here.
      • bug 434624 – safebrowsing file not updated on first launch. This was RC2-’d, but a fix and test has been verified on tryserver.
    • We had another high activity RC2 test day on Fri, May 30th. Over 35 people joined us. Coce was again the top community tester! There was a lot more activity and interaction than that the results show.
  • Topcrashes update (ss)

    • Summary (as of 2008-06-02): In RC2, we fixed four topcrashes in cluding the number one. Of the top 20, we’ve can see that at least 7 (more likely 8) are caused by add-ons or plug-ins. We’ve been in contact with several plug-in and extension vendors to get those bugs fixed including Silverlight, Piclens, and Google. This is excellent progress for an RC and we hope to continue to make progress in 3.0.1 based on feedback from RC2.

    • See wiki for latest crash report


Build

  • bits signed, ready to go. Waiting for formal “ok to start pushing to mirrors”.


Firefox 3.0.1


QA


Build


Firefox 3.1

  • how should we be flagging bugs?

    • blocking1.9.1+ actually means blocking.

    • If a bug is not a blocker, but still of high importance to the release, it will be marked wanted1.9.1+.
    • The priority field should be used on each wanted1.9.1+ field in order to identify which bugs to work on first.
      • P1 is high complexity, long-running tasks.

      • P2 are of moderate complexity
      • P3 are low priority bugs that will likely fall off the list.
  • what work is underway?
  • what work needs attention / is at risk?

Firefox 3: issues for final ship

note: platform and front end are now merged into one section


Localization

13 bugs landed for RC2/3.0.1


QA Status/Topics

  • Notable Bugs

    • See wiki for our RC2 nominations. Top priority bugs are:

      • bug 433340 – bookmark dialog covers candidate window when using IME. Status: recommended for RC2 with patch in place.

      • bug 421482 – – Firefox 3 uses fsync excessively. This was discussed at the Tuesday meeting and is a decent perf win if we can get this in. It tends to make the UI unusable when the user hits this state, so it should be considered for an RC2.
    • The other bugs nominated (lower pri, but good to have if we are respinning) are listed in the wiki above.
    • Additional bugs found during RC1 testing are recorded here.
  • General Testing

    • QA is 90% completed with overall RC1 testing. No additional blocking issues so far.

    • Target signoff sometime end of day today
    • Common feedback reported from RC1 testing
    • About 180 testcases ran during RC1 Testday Part 2 last friday. A lot more bug investigation discussion then test execution though.


Round table

  • RC2

    • decided that there was sufficient need to do an RC2

    • overall impact (see below for estimated schedule) to final ship date is about 5 days, as external dependencies would have kept us to 2nd/3rd week of June anyway
    • most bugs for this RC have landed, waiting on bug 398332 and bug 435362
    • estimated schedule:
      • Code complete: Wednesday, May 28, noon PDT

      • Hand to build: Thursday, May 29, 6am PDT
      • QA begins: Thursday, May 29th, noon PDT (as builds become available)
      • QA signoff: Thursday, June 5th
  • joduinn: netapp woes. See my blog or bug 435134

    • decided to wait until after we built RC2 to schedule this work
