Voting to close this answer as its unclear what you are asking for. Perhaps if you could add more details about what you are trying to achieve, using what tools, etc.?

comment Should test cases contain more than one step with expected result (ISO 29119 definition)
What do you mean by formal? Do you mean an environment or organization that likes or requires lots of documentation? Can you explain what you mean by a session? Are you doing Session Based Test Management? It's interesting how different and old-school your organization sounds to be. =)

comment Is there an easy way to do Compatibility QA testing for web app?
Be careful about /only/ using IE's developer tools for compatibility testing. I've found numerous discrepancies between the dev tools and the real browsers that I, as a tester, can't rely on the tools anymore. Modern.ie is a great place to get all of IE's browsers for free and run them in virtual machines.

comment Would having a Certificate help?
As an added reference, I recently came across the Agile Alliance's stance on certification and it's pretty good: agilealliance.org/the-alliance/agile-certification

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about how to install a bug tracker. We aren't a support site for Bugzilla.

comment Security testing - functional or non-functioal, ISO 9126 vs ISO 25010
Is there a question you want to ask and have answered? The way this is written it comes off as a statement. Is this a question that can be answered in a non-subjective way?

Can you summarize the slides as it relates to the question? Otherwise it seems like this post doesn't belong.

comment Testing Paid Signup in Production
What sorts of things are required for a paid user? Do you require credit cards, valid billing addresses, etc? This should dictate the restraint or stubs you use when testing. How would creating fake signups boost revenue numbers? What's the risk?

What is your question? It's not clear from your writing, you might want to reword it.

comment Need guidance on how to prepare for an SQA interview
Yes, however you'll want make sure you are comfortable explaining the HTSM or at the very least the mnemonics used it in, so if someone asks you can explain why you use them. (Assuming it's an in-person interview)

comment About QA title/Position
@HelpingHands - I've never put a title in an offer or acceptance letter but I have asked the hiring manager what title they intend to use and I often suggest something else. It depends on the company if they will take a suggestion or not. Smaller companies will usually let you decide on your title while bigger companies may have set titles. What do you do in your day job / in practice? What do you want to do more of?

comment About QA title/Position
@FDM Neither did I. I believe you are making a very big exaggeration by saying that everyone in the testing industry intuitively understands these titles. Maybe you think everyone should... because you do? But instead of saying /you think/ they're clear simple and understood, you said or implied everyone does understand them. Make sense?

comment About QA title/Position
@FrederikDeMets I'm not trying to twist your words. I understood you to mean you think everyone who is involved in testing on a day to day, hands-on basis would understand these roles. Is that right? If so, I'm saying I disagree with you.

comment About QA title/Position
@FrederikDeMets I've never met a person who's company follows the ISTQB division of roles. Have you? Saying such roles are understood by everyone is a very big exaggeration. Someone with no experience could easily be a test manager - if that's the position they were hired for. That's not to say said person would be good or bad.

comment About QA title/Position
@HelpingHands You can call yourself whatever you want. If you do a lot of mobile testing, using the term Mobile in your job title might help you down the road to be hired in another or similar position.

comment Where to find Beta-Testers
Do you want people who will beta test your app or are you looking for testers who will test your app in a beta cycle? (The difference being skill level)

comment Purpose of Quality Assurance (QA) testing vs User Acceptance Testing (UAT)?
In general it depends on the skills of the people, the way roles are defined in your organization and the organizations objectives.

Can you explain what you mean by "do all the documentation"? What is an LR?
