Reporter, the Troubleshooting link was already fixed in another bug.

Daniel, do you know of any plans to have posted? or maybe under 1.6?
I'm wondering if we should change the link back to 1.4 or change it to 1.6 or
keep it at 1.5.

Asa: Do you know of any plans to add a or
maybe start/1.6/troubleshooting? I'd like to know which one of these Help should
link to for 1.6, or maybe some other link?

Nominating for blocking1.6. Usually I wouldn't make this a blocker, but this is
a huge link to be dead in help and it shouldn't be dead in the final release. It
would confuse users and make it harder for them to find troubleshooting tips.
Ever confirmed: true
Flags: blocking1.6?
Summary: Help file has two broken links on first page → Troubleshooting link in Help Welcome screen is broken

myk, there's a bogus "Troubleshooting" directory in mozilla-org/html/start/1.5/
preventing me from checking in "troubleshooting/*" files (note the case). Can
you remove it?
I copied the 1.4 troubleshooting files to 1.5.  (I guess you can't do that on
windows since the filesystem is case-insensitive.)

Marking bug fixed, since it appears to have fixed itself with dbaron's checkin
of the 1.5 start page.

And nobody is worried about the fact that 1.6 help will be pointing to the 1.5
start page?

hmm. Good point! file a bug!

I won't have time to fix this until the weekend, so filing a bug will remind me
:). If you don't have time, email me and I'll file one.

dbaron, that would be bug 224351 . We don't want to have too many start pages.
