I clicked the firefox logo in the top-right corner of the UI. I clicked the "developer" link on that page. I got a 404 error.
This is indeed correct. The link are wrong on the page. The patch basically adds '../' before the link so they go another level deeper as required.

? http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/start/ redirects me to http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ in both Firefox and Mozilla
Yeah, I just tested from in Mozilla :-) * <http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/start/../../developer/> * <http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/start/../../../developer/> I'm not sure how he got to that page though...
try <a href="/developer/"> :-)
Using that people can't test offline anymore ;-). However, my Firefox redirects as well...

Just to confirm, I still get the 404!! I'll attach a screen shot.
www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/start/ redirect should be live in a sec
Um, why was products/firefox/start/ made a *permanent* redirect? We now have a new page, but it will take users a long time to see it. I had that set up very carefully (with Cache-Control headers) so that users would revalidate the start page on every startup. You should have seen that I was responsible for a good bit of stuff on that page and contacted me about it before doing that. I've disabled stolenclover's CVS access because he's been warned about this (contacting owners before breaking their stuff) many times before and failed to shape up.
(Note that a temporary redirect would actually have been an improvement on the old page, but it should have been obvious from the cvs logs that you should have at least told me you were doing this, and probably asked me first.)
