Ah. That might be my confusion. When I let it go with multiple
concatenated URLs, I was getting an error - might have been because it
was attempting to reopen a dead dynamic page while running through the
dozen other tabs/pages that were probably open at the time that I
spotted something and said "hm. that'd make a nice home page." To me
it just looked like the concatenation wasn't being accepted.

But maybe you're right, and it's legit.

OK, I take back any hard things I said about Mozilla developers this
week. :-)
