This is a guest blog post by Henrik Skupin from the Mozilla QA team.
Mozmill, which is a framework for running functional tests, can be used for any application which is built on top of the Mozilla platform. This includes Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and many others. But it’s not only possible to test the application itself. Instead it can also be used to run any type of functional tests for installed add-ons.
To stimulate add-on authors to create their own Mozmill tests, Mozilla QA is holding a testday on Friday, March 5th, which is fully devoted to Mozmill testscripting for your add-on. Learn how Mozmill tests will be written and how they can be run in Firefox. The Mozmill team will be around the whole day to assist you wherever possible.
If you are interested in the testday, you should read through the following documentation about the creation of testscripts for extensions.
You can also attend, when you have general questions about Mozmill or when you want to help in creating Mozmill tests for Firefox. Get ready and join us in #testday next Friday.
