This test case tests whether the default web browser is operational in a given installation.
How to test
- Clean boot the Fedora you wish to test: this could be a system installed from a particular snapshot, pre-release, or release, or a live image.
- Try to launch the default web browser in a typical way for the tested desktop environment: for instance, from the system menus, or by clicking on an icon in the panel.
- If your first tried method fails, note the reason why, and try a different method of launching the browser; continue to note any other failures you experience.
- Once you have managed to launch the browser, attempt to log in to FAS (the Fedora Accounts System) with a valid Fedora project account.
- Attempt to download a file from any typical web server - for instance, visit the Linux kernel site and attempt to download the latest stable kernel release tarball.
- If appropriate for the browser under test, attempt to install and use a commonly-used Mozilla-type extension, such as AdBlock Plus. If this fails, note the characteristics of the failure, and try another extension. If the browser supports a different, commonly-used extension system, test enabling an extension of that type instead.
- It should be possible to launch the browser by any typically-used method for the desktop tested.
- The browser should be capable of connecting to and correctly displaying the FAS page, and handling the login process.
- The browser should download the requested file to the default
- The browser should be capable of using extensions correctly.
