Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux armv6l; en-GB; rv:1.9a6pre) Gecko/2008031115 Firefox/3.0a1 Tablet browser 0.2.2 RX-34+RX-44_2008SE_2.2007.50-2

My homepage is http://www.mozilla.org/start/
I just updated to ff2.0.0.13, the first run gave me a pretty first run, but didn't update my dozen extensions. so i updated them and restarted. the restart run gave me a dead window from all-in-one-sidebar. opening another window gave me this:

I don't know why it thinks I'm using mozilla suite (i'm not), but i don't like it :)

my profile was probably imported from Mozilla at some point. please sniff useragents and only show a message about suite if the browser actually claims to be suite.

insulting my brand new Firefox 2.0.0.13 is very disconcerting.

Closing as fixed.  We recently added a redirect for Firefox users who hit that page.  It seems like there's a small group of people with old suite profiles still going there according to the site logs.
