I'm not arguing that we shouldn't have a "everything together" options,
but I don't think the tutorial link should point to the
page.  On my Celeron 500 with a cable internet connection (and Mozilla
1.0.0), it took 12 seconds to get to the tutorial part.  It was still
loading the images for that page after 60 seconds.  I'm not saying that
my system is ideal (if nothing else I should upgrade Mozilla), but I'm
certain that I don't have the slowest system out there.

The user manual link takes you to the table of contents; why not have
the tutorial link take you to the table of contents of the tutorial,
like the... argh, this is too complicated to explain.  I'll just
submit a patch (while commenting out the current links, instead of
deleting them) and let you complain if you don't like it.  :)
