There's a policy request to display a custom page (or no page) on the "what's new" page that is defined through the update XML. There's a pref to provide a default fallback if the update XML didn't provide it, but it won't be used if one was provided. Adding this policy will be relatively straightforward here: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/30ead7d1ae5bf95b8bc0fd67b950cd46ca05e32c/browser/components/nsBrowserContentHandler.js#142
It looks like this bug is not a priority at the moment, so I am going to work on other bugs that are. Hopefully I will be able to come back to this one afterwards.
