This page needs a technical review from the Mozilla QA Team in Q4 2014. (Assigned to Aaron Train.) This article has been created from this page from QMO: Bug Verification Day
Why: One of QA responsibilities is to validate that fixes in the browser don't yield any regressions and verify that bugs are properly fixed. In order to do this and provide community members a new area of involvement, we organize a Bug verification day on a weekly basis, every Wednesday.
How: Choose a bug from the lists in the Bug Verification wiki and follow the detailed steps below to begin your verification.
How to Verify Fixed Bugs:
b) If the bug does NOT reproduce, then you can mark the bug “verified”. Set the “status-firefoxN” (N-Firefox version) flag to “verified” for the version you tested, add a comment indicating the details of your testing. If the bug was verified on all the tracked versions, you can change its resolution to VERIFIED FIXED. Ask someone on IRC for help if you don’t have the rights to change the flags or the resolution. When possible, also do same exploratory testing around the fix to ensure nothing got broken.
Example of bug comment with details of testing:
“Verified on Firefox version 20 beta 6, on Windows 7, 64-bits by following the steps from comment x.
I’ve also tested the following scenarios: y1, y2, y3”
Ask: For any questions or tips, use the #qa channel on IRC. The QA team will be there to help. Mentorship: In case you have never verified a bug or just need someone to walk you through our process, please contact one of our QA Mentors. These are their names and IRC nicks:
If you can't find them on IRC, or don't want to contact them this way, you can just cc one of them on the bug you want to work on and ask for help.
