Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.10pre) Gecko/2009041704 GranParadiso/3.0.10pre

Description:
After installing this build and starting it on a fresh profile, one of the loaded tabs contains a "GranParadiso Alpha Start Page", http://www.mozilla.org/projects/granparadiso/ which has a big red warning near the top, as follows:

This version is now obsolete. For your own safety and security, please install an updated version.

"an updated version" is a link to http://www.getfirefox.com/ where I can download... Firefox 3.0.8, i.e., actually an _earlier_ version (but of course a "release" while what I'm testing is a "branch nightly" of the same branch).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a GranParadiso nightly from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest1.9.0
2. Start it with the -ProfileManager command-line switch.
3. Create a new profile, then start using it.
4. Click the second tab.

Actual results:
See "Description" above

Expected results:
The "start page" loaded by a nightly newer than the current release ought not to ask me to "upgrade"... to that earlier version.

The Gran Paradiso page is no longer live and it redirects to the Firefox projects page.  This seems to be a general issue with code name pages though, so marking this as dupe of bug talking about same problem with Shiretoko and Namoroka pages.
