Memchaser 0.6 has been released

The Firefox Automation team would like to announce the release of memchaser 0.6. After nearly a year of no real feature updates, but also some weeks of not being able to run Memchaser in Firefox Aurora (34.0a2) at all (due to a regression), we decided to release the current state of development as a public release. We are aware that we still do not fully support the default Australis theme since Firefox 29.0, but that’s an issue, which takes some more time to finish up. Changes in 0.6 Upgrade toContinue readingMemchaser 0.6 has been released

Nightly Tester Tools 3.3 released

Having a good experience when testing Firefox Nightly builds should be self-evident. Therefor the QA Automation Services team is maintaining the Nightly Tester Tools extension, which brings a couple of useful features to ease the testing efforts. While the extension works fine most of the time, we unfortunately fail at times when a version bump for Firefox happens. Exactly this action repeats in a 6 week interval and is the release cycle of Firefox. So what happens here? The extension registers binary components for the crashme feature in the manifestContinue readingNightly Tester Tools 3.3 released

Review of Automation Services goals in Q1 2012

Now, three weeks after Q1 of 2012 has been passed by I finally have the time to give some details about our work happened during the first three months. As usual we set a couple of goals we wanted to see by the end of the quarter. All of them were kinda important so we did our best to get all of them done – and we succeeded even if it was in the last minute! So everyone of us was happy about the goal achievements. Below you will findContinue readingReview of Automation Services goals in Q1 2012

MemChaser 0.3 is out

Late on Thursday we got our MemChaser 0.3 release out the door. Compared to the last releases this version comes with a ton of new features and bug fixes. Most of them have been requested by users and from the JS team so we put some extra focus on those. As you can see in the image new ui elements have been added. The memory and garbage collector related items are equivalent to the buttons in ‘about:memory‘ and help those users who want to trigger a memory clean-up more oftenContinue readingMemChaser 0.3 is out

MemChaser 0.2 released

Exactly one month after we have released our initial version of MemChaser, version 0.2 has been made publicly available. You can install the add-on as usual from addons.mozilla.org or if it is already installed, simply check for updates within the Add-ons Manager. A couple of subtle changes have been made which will give a better experience for users. So we have combined the formerly two widgets in the Add-on bar into a single one to prevent other extensions from inserting their widgets in-between. At the same time the width hasContinue readingMemChaser 0.2 released

Results of the second Add-ons Manager testday

Last Friday, June the 11th, we had our second testday for exploratory testing the new Add-ons Manager. It was again well attended and we had a couple of fantastic discussions across its whole duration. If you weren’t able to attend but interested in details about the discussions, you can read through the chat transcription which lists any specific detail. Given our last testday end of April, I have continued my idea to see the testday covering more than only the PDT timezone. That means this time it has also beenContinue readingResults of the second Add-ons Manager testday

Testday for creating Mozmill Tests for Add-ons

Mozmill is not only able to execute functional and unit tests against applications, which are build on top of the Gecko platform, but can also be used to run those type of tests against extensions. If you are an extension author and interested to see your extension tested in a daily fashion by our automated test-runs in the QA-lab, you should definitely join the testday on Friday, May 28th. We really want to encourage you to think about the implementation of automated functional tests for your own extension. And it’sContinue readingTestday for creating Mozmill Tests for Add-ons

Testday for Testscripting your Add-on with MozMill

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 howContinue readingTestday for Testscripting your Add-on with MozMill
