Firefox-ui-tests – Platform Operations Project of the Month

Hello from Platforms Operations! Once a month we highlight one of our projects to help the Mozilla community discover a useful tool or an interesting contribution opportunity. This month’s project is firefox-ui-tests! What are firefox-ui-tests? Firefox UI tests are a test suite for integration tests which are based on the Marionette automation framework and are majorly used for user interface centric testing of Firefox. The difference to pure Marionette tests is, that Firefox UI tests are interacting with the chrome scope (browser interface) and not content scope (websites) by default.Continue readingFirefox-ui-tests – Platform Operations Project of the Month

Firefox Desktop automation goals Q1 2016

As promised in my last blog posts I don’t want to only blog about the goals from last quarters, but also about planned work and what’s currently in progress. So this post will be the first one which will shed some light into my active work. First lets get started with my goals for this quarter. Execute firefox-ui-tests in TaskCluster Now that our tests are located in mozilla-central, mozilla-aurora, and mozilla-beta we want to see them run on a check-in basis including try. Usually you will setup Buildbot jobs toContinue readingFirefox Desktop automation goals Q1 2016

Review of automation work – Q4 2015

The last quarter of 2015 is gone and its time to reflect what happened in Q4. In the following you will find a full overview again for the whole quarter. It will be the last time that I will do that. From now on I will post in shorter intervals to specific topics instead of covering everything. This was actually a wish from our latest automation survey which I want to implement now. I hope you will like it. So during the last quarter my focus was completely on gettingContinue readingReview of automation work – Q4 2015

Firefox Automation report – Q3 2015

It’s time for another Firefox Automation report! It’s incredible how fast a quarter passes by without that I have time to write reports more often. Hopefully it will change soon – news will be posted in a follow-up blog post. Ok, so what happened last quarter for our projects. Mozharness One of my deliverables in Q3 was to create mozharness scripts for our various tests in the firefox-ui-tests repository, so that our custom runner scripts can be replaced. This gives us a way more stable system and additional features likeContinue readingFirefox Automation report – Q3 2015

Firefox Automation report – Q2 2015

It’s been a while since I wrote my last Firefox automation report, so lets do another one to wrap up everything happened in Q2 this year. As you may remember from my last report the team has been cut down to only myself, and beside that I was away the whole April. Means only 2 months worth of work will be covered this time. In general it was a tough quarter for me. Working alone and having to maintain all of our infrastructure and keeping both of our tests (MozmillContinue readingFirefox Automation report – Q2 2015

Firefox Automation report – Q1 2015

As you may have noticed I was not able to come up with status reports of the Firefox Automation team during the whole last quarter. I feel sad about it, but there was simply no time to keep up with those blog posts. Even now I’m not sure how often I will be able to blog. So maybe I will aim to do it at least once a quarter or if possible once a month. You may ask how it comes? The answer is simple. Our team faced some changesContinue readingFirefox Automation report – Q1 2015

Firefox Automation report – week 39/40 2014

In this post you can find an overview about the work happened in the Firefox Automation team during week 39 and 40. Highlights One of our goals for last quarter was to get locale testing enabled in Mozmill-CI for each and every supported locale of Firefox beta and release builds. So Cosmin investigated the timing and other possible side-effects, which could happen when you test about 90 locales across all platforms! The biggest change we had to do was for the retention policy of logs from executed builds due toContinue readingFirefox Automation report – week 39/40 2014

Firefox Automation report – week 31/32 2014

In this post you can find an overview about the work happened in the Firefox Automation team during week 31 and 32. It’s a bit lesser than usual, mainly because many of us were on vacation. Highlights The biggest improvement as came in during week 32 were the fixes for the TPS tests. Cosmin spent a bit of time on investigating the remaining underlying issues, and got them fixed. Since then we have a constant green testrun, which is fantastic. While development for the new TPS continuous integration system continued,Continue readingFirefox Automation report – week 31/32 2014
