Should *probably* go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html?product=firefox-4.0.1&os=osx&lang=en-US (with the appropriate values for your platform and the latest build), but I don't know for sure.
As far as I know, this never worked. Are you calling this a regression or just a feature request? Side note: firefox.com/<WHATEVER> does a 302 to www.mozilla.com/firefox/<WHATEVER>. There isn't a specific redirect for /download.
Was surprised this didn't work -- not calling it a regression, no.
So what should the fix be here exactly? Still not 100% clear to me.
(In reply to comment #4) > So what should the fix be here exactly? Still not 100% clear to me. Was hoping you or someone else responsible for Mozilla.com could provide direction; I'm not going to prescribe a fix, but I did make a suggestion in comment 1. Just think we shouldn't 302 twice over to a 404 -- we should do something more meaningful, and if it's not hard to implement, comment 1, makes sense to me, unless we lose metrics from a lack of a Download Now click?

James - any thoughts here?
Target Milestone: --- → 2.5
Currently firefox.com is a naive system as described by Reed (just some rules in Apache AFAICT). I think we should make it a bit smarter. As an example, Pascal and I often talked about doing language detection on firefox.com to save one redirection. And with a smarter system, I think we should redirect all firefox.com/<WHATEVER> to mozilla.com homepage except some special URLs that we link. Or redirect to mozilla.com/<WHATEVER> if we know it's not a 404 and to mozilla.com homepage if we find a 404. About redirecting to the download page, I don't think it's a good idea. When you type firefox.com/download, you don't expect an automatic download to be triggered.
What about just sending them to http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html?
James & Anthony, Can you rally with a reply to Stephen and get this into our final release this quarter - it matches up nicely with the new 404 page, etc. Thanks! CB
Stephen: I'd rather redirect to http://www.mozilla.com. It's easier to download from there than from all.html, you don't have to find your language. What do you think? Chrissie: We should assign this to IT once we decide where to redirect. That way they set up the redirect on firefox.com.

Ok, assigning to Cory to assign to his team, thank you all :)
