User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100922 Fedora/3.6.10-1.fc13 Namoroka/3.6.10
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100922 Fedora/3.6.10-1.fc13 Namoroka/3.6.10

When I started my unofficial build of Firefox 3.6.10 after upgrading from 3.6.7, I observed the following sequence of redirects for the whatsnew page:

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/3.6.10/whatsnew/ ->
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/3.6.10/whatsnew ->
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.10/whatsnew ->
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6/whatsnew/

The final page shows the message, "For security reasons, we recommend downloading the latest and greatest version.", which is incorrect because I was in fact using the latest and greatest version.  I think the change of version in the third redirect is a mistake.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone to rv:1.9.2.7 .
2. Restart the browser.
Actual Results:  
I reach the 3.6 whatsnew page with the message, "For security reasons, we recommend downloading the latest and greatest version."

Expected Results:  
I reach the 3.6.10 whatsnew page, which (until 3.6.11 is released) does not contain the aforementioned message.

Closing old Mozilla.org website bugs due to them not being relevant to the new Python-based Bedrock system. Re-open if this is a critical bug and should be resolved on the new system too.

Never investigated, but if you see this bug using Firefox 13, please file a new bug on it.
