    Please add following point to the list:

    "What’s New" Page After Updates

    See http://www.ghacks.net/2011/08/18/disable-firefoxs-whats-new-page-after-updates/ for information.

    Setting browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone to "ignore" will disable the "what's new" page. (Note: On Thunderbird the parameter seems to be called mailnews.start_page_override.mstone.)
