Delivery mechanism:

  • No issues found.

Product specific:

  • We have encountered 4 known issues, all of which have been resolved as won’t fix for Firefox 83 prior to our testing. They affect user experience, but they are not considered blocking.
  • We have found 2 new issues, one of which has been fixed and verified and the other has been closed as won’t fix.
  • The page accessed from the “Our sponsors & your privacy” option of the Sponsored tiles is still in its placeholder form. QA has been informed it will be ready by the time the experiment will be launched, but it has not been ready during our testing or at the time of this sign-off.

What needs to be done?

  • [Engineering] [Product]: Verify that the issues marked as won’t fix for 83 have taken into account the existence of the experiment.
  • [Product]: Make sure that the page accessed from “Our sponsors & your privacy” is populated with the correct content before the experiment is launched.

Testing Summary:

  • Test runs: TestRail
  • Exploratory testing performed on Linux Mint 20 related to enrollment, Sponsored Top Sites being displayed, them being dismissable and that visiting Amazon and eBay can still make the non-Sponsored version be displayed in Top Sites.
  • Testing has been performed on the Stage environment. Due to the nature of the experiment, care should be taken so that the Production version has been set up with the same content as the Stage version of the top-sites Remote Settings collection.

Tested Platforms:

  • Windows 10
  • Linux Mint 20 (exploratory and bug verification)
  • macOS 10.15 (exploratory and bug verification)

Tested Firefox versions:

  • Firefox 83.0 RC 2 (Build ID: 20201112153044)
  • Firefox 83.0 RC 1 (Build ID: 20201110140026)
