I agree that the 404 is bad but it's hard to say that the nameservers are actually incorrect.  Need to track down site owners - seth, any ideas?

For me it is easy to say because I was an owner of this domain. When that domain was trasfered to Mozilla someone forgot to change DNS servers.

Everthing was working fine until I changed my hosting provider. They (my previous hosting provider) still offer limited functionality for free - this is why you can see 404 instead of "cannot find the server firefox.name"

Current DNS servers: nsh.interia.pl, dnsh.poczta.fm

Okay, I've done the following:

I've changed the nameservers at MarkMonitor to ns2.markmonitor.com (and friends) and setup a forwarding to http://firefox.com/ .  Will take a couple hours to refresh.
