Ticket: #6370 (tails#6370 (closed))
feature/ff24 branch builds, boots and basically works fine.
Guidelines for testers
What to test? — Test an ISO built from the
feature/ff24branch. The most recent nightly built one should do. See the Needs to be checked section below, and test whatever should work fine in the Tails web browser.
Information we need — Always report the exact commit the ISO you are testing was built from (if it is a nightly built one, report its filename; if you built it yourself, you can get this information in About Tails).
Reporting problems — If you discover something suboptimal, first please check Known issues below and the sub-tasks of tails#6370 (closed). Then, please check if it's a regression compared to the current stable Tails, and then:
- If it is a regression, file a sub-task of tails#6370 (closed).
- If it is not a regression, report a complete bug
Note that the main goal of this testing session is to discover
feature/ff24, and gain confidence in it; basically, everything else will be treated as low-priority. Let's keep focus, please :)
Reporting success — When something works fine, please add it to the Known working section below. If you don't have Git commit bit, and have no personal Tails Git repo, report success to the email thread on the tails-dev mailing list, or to intrigeri on IRC.
If in doubt — Ask intrigeri on IRC (
Needs to be checked
Empty for now.
Comparing to TBB 3.0b1:
- It says 1.8 too for Tails 0.21 and TBB 2.3.25-14-dev, so that looks like a regression.
- It says 1.5 too for iceweasel 24.1.0esr-1 and for Firefox 24.1, both running on Debian sid.
- No downgraded package in that ISO vs. 0.21.
ip-check.info returns a line "Screen" with Tails 0.21, TBB 2.4.17~rc1, and TBB 3.0b1 running from inside Tails 0.22 but not with Tor browser 24.1:
Screen: 1000 x 567 pixels (inner size), Zoom: 100%.
ip-check.info returns a slightly different "Browser Window" size, even if run in the same context (freshly started browser in a virtual machine with the same screen size). That's tails#6377 (closed) and bug #10095 on Tor Project's Trac, not much we can do about it yet.
Browser window: 1000 x 600with Tor browser 24.1
Browser window: 1000 x 567with Tails 0.21
Browser window: 1000 x 591with TBB 3.0b1
Browser window: 1000 x 564with TBB 2.4.17~rc1
A build from
feature/ff24 is seen by ip-check.info just the same way
is Tails 0.20.1's browser.
Comparing to TBB 3.0b1:
- panopticlick: same results, modulo screen size
- eepsites via I2P work
- Tor hidden services work
Persistent bookmarks feature
- bootstrapped on this branch
- created with an older Tails, upgrading
Working with tails-i386-feature_ff24-0.22-20131111T0855Z-10f5a19.iso.
... were cleaned up (tails#5768 (closed)), many were merged with Torbrowser's ones, and they are in the intended state at runtime.
Successfully tested French, Portuguese (both Brazil's and Portugal's flavours), German, and Arabic.
Repeatedly opening and closing works as expected.
Connects fine to the web as of 0f5eab28.
