Currently, if you load about:home, it leaves "about:home" in the URL bar. It shouldn't do that.

It should work similarly to about:newtab, it's an implementation detail, and should never be surfaced in the UI.

Oh, cool. I forgot about gInitialPages.
Nit: If you change the patch to add "about:home" between "about:newtab" and "about:privatebrowsing", we only need to change one line in the file, and the related pages are slightly better grouped. :)

fwiw, would have been nicer to keep the existing alphabetical order...
