Add-on details page has homepage link even if none is provided in the add-on's install.rdf (have Dictionnaire MySpell en Francais réformé 1990 here, seems it has been removed from AMO).
It's only a placeholder for now. But it has to be solved for bug 562902.

Dave, does it also mean I have to wait for data from AMO to see the homepage link? This is very inconsistent for me between OS X and other platforms at the moment.

It should take less than a day to get the additional data from AMO, regardless of the platform. But if you aren't running a build for more than 10 minutes then the data will never get downloaded.

Can't we fetch that information when an user has installed a new add-on or a timer is reached? I think it's important to have that information immediately available in the details pane. I would like to file a new bug on that. The current situation makes testing extremely hard.
We do fetch the information on a timer, that timer goes once a day along with the update check. You can file a bug to have it downloaded at install time if you like
