If you extrapolate Sep-Jan as a curve, you end up with something
akin to what you got in July, August.
In other words, as suggested in my comments above, maybe people
decided to ignore mozilla.org for a few months but the underlying
growth in other respects continued unabated. Then the alert/press
wave in late June was simply a catalyst to act for those who were
thinking about doing something about Firefox anyway to go do it.
If so, that would suggest there's just a simple long term
underlying trend of a 15% a month visit climb, with a new user
climb which is, presumably, less than that.
What happened with 404s in May-Jun? There were more 404s than OKs!
A broken image?
While I'm posting summaries of stats I'll note that these:
indicate a pretty steady 7% per month developer growth over
an 18 month period.
