1. This seems like a simple caching issue. Since that page is requested so many times, it is probably heavily cached. I always thought it was strange that they would try to personalize that page and they probably cache all but that little block. But probably something got stuck in one of the many caching layers (perhaps even at the CDN level). I still think they should have a different, totally cached page for that “Firefox start” page. While this is probably not a huge security risk, it is certainly a serious privacy issue. Sorry stephenandmandy!
