The following URLs used to have release notes for old beta versions of Firefox for mobile, but now return 404:

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/mobile/4.0b1/releasenotes/index.html

Hey Christian - any idea what's happening here? Would be nice to have these links function to keep a record somewhere.

FWIW, the same issue was happening with old desktop beta release notes as well. I made the redirect not happen for anything less than or equal to 4.0b##, which lets the request pass through to the old files instead of being redirected to a generic #.#beta page. It should work for older versions like 2.0.0b## already, as those forms aren't matched by the redirect regex (as it is only looking for modern [major].[minor]b[some number]).
