The latest-beta link on the ftp site does not seem to point to the latest beta. it points to version 42 betas even though version 43 beta1 has been released.
Summary: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest-beta/ → http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest-beta/ pnts to version 42 betas even though 43 beta 1 has been released

This is related to the FTP-to-S3 migration where there are no <s>spoons</s> symlinks. :) IIRC there is a bug to make sure that we either stop using "latest" or fix this.
Lets use this bug for that. I am planning to empty these directories and add a README file which describes how to use download.mozilla.org links instead.

I've empted out firefox/releases/latest-beta/ and added http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest-beta/README.txt Some empty directories are still showing up, hopefully that's just some caching and they'll disappear soon. Other directories and a blog post to follow.

I used the README file information and shortened my script to download the latest beta considerably in doing so. It works great!
I've done Firefox latest, latest-beta, and latest-esr, as well as Thunderbird latest-beta and latest. Blogged at https://ftangftang.wordpress.com/2015/11/17/the-latest-on-firefoxreleaseslatest/.
Created attachment 8688157 [details] [diff] [review] [buildbot-configs] Update thunderbird-beta-latest alias We already have a thunderbird-latest, and 3 for firefox, so this completes the set.

What about mobile/firefox for android?
I looked at that. The main multi-locale builds are distributed by Google Play, so we don't have a download.m.o link for them. We'd need a 'multi' locale in bouncer to support that, not sure how hard that would be to get into product-details and then deployed. Traditionally this has been a slow process. The single locale builds do kinda get set up, except the work on bug 1019724 stalled and since then we've split the arm build in api-11+ and api-9/10. So multiple issues to fix for a very much lower traffic situation, which makes it low priority work compared to other things on my plate right now.

Summary: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest-beta/ points to version 42 betas even though 43 beta 1 has been released → firefox/releases/latest-* stale since migration to S3 storage
Fixed as filed (ie firefox). Mobile is problematic, we need bug 1226476 to modify www.mozilla.org to stop using mobile/releases/latest/.
