http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0/ http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.4/ http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.5/ http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.6/ Don't force it down the throat of users to upgrade. The Mozilla release that you're currently using is out of date. Please upgrade to the latest version of Mozilla or try our new lightweight standalone browser and e-mail applications, Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird. -> An updated version of Mozilla is ready. Get it Now! Or try our new lightweight standalone.... Mozilla download page should be www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/ The two big images should be removed The message should be below the "Welcome to Mozilla 1.x!" header I don't have access to mozilla-org/html/start/1.0/index.html, so I can't make these changes.
All previous versions have at least some security issues which have been fixed. I don't think this message is too strong at all. Pointing to the 1.x product page isn't a very good solution if the 1.x line comes to an end. The front page is a much safer link. It advertises all of our products and might include additional breaking news or other important messages.
Also, I hope you weren't saying that all that stopped you from making those changes was your lack of access. That kind of attitude makes me unfomfortable with your having any access to change any pages.
Falling back on fixed security issues is hardly a reason to be pushing Fx/Tbird on the Mozilla 1.x start pages so boldly. Since Mozilla 1.7 is hardly mentioned, it's obvious that the attempt is to market the new apps. Besides, marketting the new apps to Mozilla 1.0-1.6 users isn't the target market for those apps. Also, the new boxes look like they break the 1.0 and 1.4 pages that don't use the new format. (Paricularly on the non-default styles) The 1.0 and 1.4 start pages are part of Mozilla's history (mainly 1.0), not a page that should be used to support Aviary marketting.
You're not going to convince me to change it so don't reopen this bug.
