Now that the version number of Bon Echo nightlies is 2.0 (in preparation for RC1's release) we're getting a lot of people asking questions about the 404s they're seeing on first run.

The same redirects used for

    http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/2.0b2/whatsnew/
and http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/2.0b2/firstrun/

should be used for

    http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/2.0/whatsnew/
and http://www.mozilla.org/projects/bonecho/2.0/firstrun/

This is not what we need. I'll fix this later today after my classes end.

I downloaded installed, and ran all rc1 localized builds and I still see "404 -- page not found errors" on first run for all the locales.  We need to fix this with a blank page, or redirect to some en-us content before we ship RC1.  The 404 error will confuse a lot of folks trying out the Release Candidate and reflect poorly on their first start up experience.

rc1 build - url where they they see the 404

That would be bug 353362. This bug fixes the 404s encountered on unofficial builds.
