This is a bug in the macro used to build the sidebar. I've filed to track it.
Hi, I see the changes which "Legacy_add_ons" category has been removed too, but now I found very strange behavior  in that page, e.g.

Getting started -> What are extensions? -> "Legacy addons" category gone.

Getting started -> your first extension ->"Legacy addons" category re-appear. (And Channel link in new tab will not found.)

Getting started -> Your second extension -> "Legacy addons" category gone.
Getting started -> Anatomy of an extension -> "Legacy addons" category re-appear.

Getting started -> Example extensions -> "Legacy addons" category gone.

... etc
