From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020227 BuildID: 2002031115 after upgrading start page is displayed even though disabled it goes to http://www.mozilla.org/start i checked the preferences and it was not set to go there as it had been before I upgraded I quit and reloaded and it did not go, so it only occures the first time after an upgrade of mozilla Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.upgrade mozilla 2.load it and see go to start page 3.
This is the expected behaviour after a new installation, and the activation page will only load on first run. Resolving as invalid.

Hi I don't follow why it is the expected behavior? I don't want my bandwidth being used so I have disabled the start page, and as that box has no http proxy there is nothing to load! it gives an error thus! Surely the disabled start page should be aheared to not ignored? I request a 3rd opinion / consideration again. please JG
what about this pref: user_pref("startup.homepage_override_url", "blah-blah-blah"); huh?
Yes, that will work, but why not just implment the feature as it should be? IMO Think about it from the users perspective, they are not going to want to hack the prefs file are they! If a user sets "user blank home page" thats what they expect! Not "user blank home page in most cases but not including the time when you upgrade" The fact that I have upgraded does not need to be anounced to me by going back the to the mozilla.org site if I upgrade I will be perfectly aware that I have upgraded already. And if i upgrade a user remotly they will just get errors from no http access and be confused un-necessaryily, even if they have http acess they will be confused why its changed homepage etc So to sum up, IMO it is better to allow your feature of jumping to the mozilla site after an upgrade, but ONLY if it has been specifically enabled, I dont think this feature is very useful for 99% of mozilla users.
