I agree with the color recommendation for the left column.

I really like the background color on the sections ("The Latest From Mozilla", "Mozilla 1.7 / 1.7.1", "Technology Previews", etc.) of the current page (not the beta) as it helps classify the content with a blink of an eye.

I also like the warmer colors (yellow, red, brown) of the current page whereas the blue and white of the beta are "colder". Though it's true that blue is a more usual color for links, so there are easier to recognize for newcomers.
