Firefox Beta release notes redirect to 404 page

Posted

Firefox beta installer offers a link to "Details" when a new version is available. However this link has been broken in the last releases. Version 28 sends me to the following invalid page: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/28.0/releasenotes/

The correct page is: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/28.0beta/releasenotes/

Yes, I see the same thing when I go to the Options window - Advanced panel in Firefox 28 Beta, select the Update tab, then click on the Show Update History button and finally click on Details (See my screenshot).

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers. I'll escalate this to see if a Mozilla employee can look into the matter and possibly file a bug report.
