Using Selenium and webdriver to interact with insecure SSL pages in Firefox

Interacting with insecure SSL pages (eg. self-signed) in an automated test written for Selenium is an important feature. Especially when tests are getting run against locally served test pages. Under those circumstances you might never get fully secured websites served to the browser instance under test. To still allow running your tests with a successful test result, Selenium can instruct the browser to ignore the validity check, which will simply browse to the specified site without bringing up the SSL error page. Since the default driver for Firefox was switchedContinue readingUsing Selenium and webdriver to interact with insecure SSL pages in Firefox

Review of Firefox desktop automation work – Q1 2016

Today is the last day of Q1 2016 which means time to review what I have done during all those last weeks. When I checked my status reports it’s kinda lot, so I will shorten it a bit and only talk about the really important changes. Build System / Mozharness After I had to dig into mozharness to get support for Firefox UI Tests during last quarter I have seen that more work had to be done to fully support tests which utilize Nightly or Release builds of Firefox. TheContinue readingReview of Firefox desktop automation work – 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 – 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

In this post you can find an overview about the work happened in the Firefox Automation team during week 51 and 52 of 2014.

In this post you can find an overview about the work happened in the Firefox Automation team during week 49 and 50.

There are various bigContinue readingFirefox Automation report – week 49/50 2014

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

Mozmill 2.0.7 and 2.0.8 have been released

The Firefox Automation team would like to announce the release of Mozmill 2.0.7 and Mozmill 2.0.8. Both versions had to be released in such a short time frame to ensure continuing support for Firefox. Some latest changes done for Firefox Nightly broke Mozmill, or at least made it misbehaving. If you run tests with Mozmill ensure to upgrade to the latest version. You can do this via PyPI, or simply download the already pre-configured environment. Changes in 2.0.7 Bug 1066295 – testMultipleLoads.js is failing due to new HTTP Cache v2Continue readingMozmill 2.0.7 and 2.0.8 have been released
