:cmore - Do you have any further insight to the /en-US/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ URL? We're wondering if this goofy pattern is an internal bug or just a bad link from outside. Can you tell how much traffic this URL is receiving?

If I graph /.+/firefox/.+/firefox/whatsnew/ (all locales) over all of 2014. There was zero traffic until immediately on June 18th. Roughly about 5,000+ per week and pretty steady up until now. Top variations: /en-US/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ /fr/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ /es-ES/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ /en-US/firefox/fr/firefox/whatsnew/ From looking at the data, the first locale in that URL pattern appears to be the correct one. For example, 100% of /fr/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ is coming from a fr browser and 100% of /es-ES/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ comes from an es-ES browser. So... /en-US/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ > /en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ /fr/firefox/en-US/firefox/whatsnew/ > /fr/firefox/whatsnew/ and so on.... it is interesting that none of these URLs contain version numbers. It looks like this is mainly Firefox 1.x, 2.x and the latest Firefox version.
