As far as the 10.0 ESR line stays the same (only security fixes are taken), there's no point to show the "whatsnew" page after update.
Assignee: nobody → stransky
If the startup.homepage_override_url is empty the page is not shown after update.

After updating FF 10.0.3 ESR build 1 to FF 10.0.4 ESR (FF 10.0.3 ESR build 2 doesn't update), "whatsnew" page is not displayed but startup.homepage_override_url is NOT empty. Is this correct? Tested on Win 7/64, Ubuntu 11.10/64, Mac OS X 10.6.8
The change has been made for branded firefox only, maybe because of that?

So I guess this is not something we can verify until we have official candidate builds for 10.0.4ESR?
Do the builds you're testing use official branding, or not?
No, the ESR 10.0.4pre builds are Nightly branded.
Verified fixed with 10.0.3esr -> 10.0.4esr updates on esr channel.
