Mini Personas Plus Test Day! (Friday)

add-ons, Browsers, Firefox, Mozilla, Personas, Work 2 Comments

We’re just about ready to release an updated version of Personas Plus for both Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 4, so we’re holding a somewhat impromptu testday for it on Friday (but feel free to start early if you like).

Where to get it…

If you have a few minutes to spare, please grab Personas Plus RC4 from the FTP site and install it on Firefox 3.6 or Firefox 4. You will have to “allow” the site to install the add-on in the dialog that pops up:

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/labs/personas/personas-1.6.2rc4.xpi

How to help…

Please test a few of the activities listed below (and anything else you can think of). If something appears odd or broken, either post a note here, leave a comment on the Personas forum thread or send an email to me directly at deb@mozilla.com.

On IRC?

If you’re on Mozilla IRC, feel free to join the #personas and #qa channels — I’ll be online for most of the day, so look for me (dria) there if you have any questions or think you have found a problem.

Some stuff to test…

  • Does the add-on icon (Fox Mask) appear properly in your status bar (Firefox 3.6) or add-on bar (Firefox 4)?
  • When you click on the Fox Mask icon, does the menu appear to be complete and correct?
  • Do all the menu items seem to do what they should?
  • When you open the “My Favorites” menu item, does clicking the “Sign in to Access your Favorites” take you to the correct page on GetPersonas.com (the account sign-in and creation page)?
  • When you select the “Random Selection from [galleryname]” submenu item, do you get a new, randomly selected Persona?
  • If you have selected the “Random Selection from [galleryname]” submenu item, does your Persona change periodically (every 60 minutes or so)?
  • If you are logged into your GetPersonas.com account, does clicking on “Go to My Favorites” do the correct thing?
  • If you are logged into your GetPersonas.com account, are you still logged in if you click any of the “#### More from [galleryname]” menu items to visit the GetPersonas.com galleries?
  • Go to Preferences and check the “Show Custom Persona in menu” checkbox. Does this add a new “Custom Persona” menu item?
  • Are you able to create and apply a custom persona using the Custom Persona menu item?
  • Does uninstalling the add-on from the add-ons manager work properly?

Did we miss something?

If you can think of anything else that we should test, please let me know and I’ll add it to the list. Thanks!

Personas Plus RC4 (yep, we found another bug)

add-ons, Browsers, Mozilla, Personas, Work No Comments

A fourth (and really hopefully final!) Release Candidate of the Personas Plus add-on for Firefox 4 is available on the FTP servers. The RC works with Firefox 3+, current nightly builds, and Firefox 4 beta releases.

You can download the add-on here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/labs/personas/ — you want to get personas-1.6.2rc4.xpi.

If you find any issues (or if you test and everything seems OK), please post a comment here! Thanks!

This RC fixes an interaction with GetPersonas.com, so is relatively minor. There are still some known issues, some of which will be fixed in a future version and others which are server-side. Thanks again for all your help!

Personas Plus RC3 – Please help test (again)!

Personas & Firefox 4 test day! Tomorrow!

Mozilla, Personas, Work No Comments


This Friday, Mozilla’s QA team is hosting a test day for Personas in Firefox 4, and we could really use your help (even if you can only spare a few minutes).

Take part by joining the #testday channel on irc.mozilla.org any time on Friday between 9am to 5pm Pacific time. There’s an etherpad document we’ll be using throughout testing, and you’re welcome to add your ideas about we could or should be testing for on Friday. Please try to find a few minutes to stop by and give us a hand!
