Firefox Addons-Builder Tests

Automated tests for the Firefox Addons Builder web application.

Running Tests


You will need a version of the Java Runtime Environment installed


Before you will be able to run these tests you will need to have Python 2.6 installed.


easy_install pip

followed by

sudo pip install -r requirements.txt


If you are running on Ubuntu/Debian you will need to do following first

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

to install the required Python libraries.


Once this is all set up you will need to download and start a Selenium server. You can download the latest Selenium server from here. The filename will be something like 'selenium-server-standalone-2.0.jar'

To start the Selenium server run the following command:

java -jar ~/Downloads/selenium-server-standalone-2.0.jar

Change the path/name to the downloaded Selenium server file.

Running tests locally

The mozwebqa py.test plugin manages the link to Selenium/webdriver. Pass in the [parameters] for the browser you require. Place your Mozilla Addons account details into credentials.yaml (but don't check them into github!)

The following command will run all flight deck/builder tests:

py.test . --browsername=? --browserver=? --platform=? --credentials=credentials.yaml


py.test  --browsername=FIREFOX --browserver=7 --platform=MAC --credentials=credentials.yaml --baseurl=""

  1. Use the template files for all new tests and page objects
  2. Follow our simple style guide
  3. Fork this project with your own GitHub account
