This supposes that users of both browsers change the start page with equal frequency. As suite is certainly geekier than Fx (more opts, more interface, more cruft), I'd bet suite users change it more than Fx users.

That said, I very doubt 6+ suite users change the start page for every 1 Fx user who does (or whatever the true figures are, don't care to think too hard about it). It's not that the suite is necessarily bad, but because it's only being maintained enough to stay functional, they're trying to switch users so that eventually (once commercial interests are mostly with Fx and 90% of suite users are former suite users) the suite can go into unmaintained (by MozFound, diehards can maintain it themselves if they so desire) mode.
