Firefox/Tbird Update Testers Wanted
Mozilla Foundation developers on Thursday asked for volunteers to test a long-awaited part of the next editions of Firefox and Thunderbird, a software update mechanism that will eliminate the need to download large files to replace outdated versions of the browser and e-mail client.
"We are now ready to do some testing of software update for both Firefox and Thunderbird," an entry on the Mozilla Quality blog read Thursday. "To that end, we have a page up on our new QA Community wiki that explains how to test the software update feature."
Testers don't need to register, but can simply follow the directions on the wiki site, which details 26 different test scenarios.
