Most or all of the new bookmarks (from bug 348165) don't yet have content, but we don't want to hold up beta 2 for that, or ship beta 2 with a bunch of 404s.  So we need to point these URLs someplace as a placeholder.

I tried all of the URLs from 348165, and these are the ones that gave me 404s:

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/livebookmarks/
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/community/
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/customize/
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/help/
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/about/
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/whatsnew/
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/firstrun/
http://www.mozilla.com/blocklist/

If I had three minutes to put together a list, I would guess:

livebookmarks: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/livebookmarks.html
community: http://www.mozilla.org/contribute/
customize: http://addons.mozilla.org/
help: http://www.mozilla.com/support/
about: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
whatsnew: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/releases/2.0b2.html (presumably that will exist when we ship)
firstrun: where does the browser go now?  central?
blocklist: ?

Summary: Beta 2 redirects for new bookmarks → Beta 2 redirects for new bookmarks and URIs
When running the B2RC1 installer for Windows, I actually read through the EULA (!) and checked the links...

Section 4 includes the text "http://www.mozilla.com/legal/privacy/firefox-en.html"  (which is a hyperlink to the same). That page doesn't exist, though. (404)

[Also, a couple of previous links go to .org, which seems a little inconsistent?]
The first-run page after the install is also a 404.

These are all sensible redirects to use for now, yes. So those mappings are:

http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/firefox/livebookmarks/ 
   --> http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/livebookmarks.html

http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/firefox/community/
   --> http://www.mozilla.org/contribute/

http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/firefox/customize/
   --> http://addons.mozilla.org/

http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/firefox/help/
   --> http://addons.mozilla.org/

http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/firefox/about/
   --> http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

> whatsnew: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/releases/2.0b2.html
> firstrun: where does the browser go now?  central?

Both of these should go to the Firefox Beta 2 Start Page (see comment 5):

http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/firefox/whatsnew/
http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/firefox/firstrun/
  --> http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/index.html

> blocklist: ?

http://{locale}.www.mozilla.com/{locale}/blocklist/

Is where this is supposed to point, but I don't know if we have any content for it at the moment. I think we should leave this one as it is.

That appears to be a bug where prefs that should have been selected by --enable-official-branding weren't, so we got the fallbacks. See bug 350453.

The fact that the RC is pointing to mozilla.org is bug 350453. As Justin mentions in comment 5, we're gonna server-side redirect those ones for now.

> Per Schrep:

Reed caught our mistake here; the redirects have to go from the non-branded URLs which will be:

1. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/2.0b2/whatsnew/
2. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/2.0b2/firstrun/
3. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/2.0b2/releasenotes/

to
1. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/
2. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/
3. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/releases/2.0b2.html

This has been done, tested and verified. As have the redirects in comment 6 and comment 7.

Thanks, Justin (and Reed and dbaron)!
