I just pushed to the fx-team repo a patch that moves the browser-chrome mochitests from /browser/base/content/tests/* to /browser/base/content/tests/general/*.
Moving the tests in browser/base/content/tests to browser/base/content/tests/general will shorten the amount of time needed to just run the "general" tests. Currently when running `mach mochitest-browser browser/base/content/test` the social and newtab tests run as well, which adds a considerable amount of time to the local test run.
The newtab and social test directories will remain as direct children of browser/base/content/test.
With this bug fixed, the directory structure should look like:
If there is any potential to move groups of tests that focus on specific functionality then those can move to their own specific folder in future bugs.
