User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a5pre) Gecko/20070506 SeaMonkey/1.5a
Build Identifier: 

Details: See "Steps to Reproduce" and "Actual Results" below

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse to http://www.mozilla.org/unix/
2. Click the first link, "Download a _nightly build_".

Actual Results:  
Browser tries to access ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/ but gets Error 550 "Failed to change directory" because that directory doesn't exist anymore.

Expected Results:  
One possible "correct" href would be (I think) one of 

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-trunk/
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/latest-trunk/

etc.

Additional info: I got this "Unix" page by clicking "Projects" in the left margin of some mozilla.org page, then "Unix" near the lower third of the Projects page.

The "Nightly Builds" link in the navigation menu seems like a good link:
<http://www.mozilla.org/developer/#builds>

Yeah, that one seems to have all the good addresses AFAICT, so I s'pose it could be as simple as writing that instead of the current, hopelessly outdated FTP link, into the HREF for the #1 item at top of the page.
