TPS is a test automation framework for Firefox Sync. See
TPS requires several packages to operate properly. To install TPS and
required packages, use the script, provided:
python3 /path/to/create/virtualenv
This script will create a virtalenv and install TPS into it.
You must then activate the virtualenv by executing:
- (mac/linux): source /path/to/virtualenv/Scripts/activate
- (win): /path/to/virtualenv/Scripts/activate.bat
TPS can then be run by executing:
runtps --binary=/path/to/firefox
> Note: You can run the tps tests in headless mode by using `MOZ_HEADLESS=1`. This will make
> your computer somewhat useable while the tests are running.
When you are done with TPS, you can deactivate the virtualenv by executing
To edit the TPS configuration, do not edit config/ in the tree.
Instead, edit config.json inside your virtualenv; it will be located at the
top level of where you specified the virtualenv be created - eg, for the
example above, it will be `/path/to/create/virtualenv/config.json`
Setting Up Test Accounts
Firefox Accounts
To create a test account for using the Firefox Account authentication perform the
following steps:
> Note: Currently, the TPS tests rely on how restmail returns the verification code
> You should use restmail or something very similar.
> Gmail and other providers might give a `The request was blocked for security reasons`
- Replace `%account_prefix%` with your own test name
3. Sign in with the previous chosen email address and a password
4. Go back to the Restmail URL, reload the page
5. Search for the verification link and open that page
Now you will be able to use this account for TPS. Note that these
steps can be done in either a test profile or in a private browsing window - you
might want to avoid doing that in a "real" profile that's already connected to
