Description

The GUI installer welcome page provided a web link to the release notes.
However, this link goes to a page titled "OpenIndiana Releases", not to the correct page containing the list of release notes for current and past releases.

Given clicking on this web link causes Firefox to open to the Wiki page, it may be a good idea to provide some additional end user guidance such as 'click only once and wait for Firefox to open', or something similar as it takes some time for firefox to load from the live media.
An impatient user (such as myself), might click the link several times because apparently nothing happened the first time.
The user then is bombarded with several instances of firefox all opening at once and trying to open the release notes page....which is probably something we don't want to see happen.

I think this is a generic problem with any multi-window interface. I don't think we should do anything about it in this particular case.
