It won't work with old firefox profiles, as the:
user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "file:///usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html");

is already in ~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile name>/prefs.js. This is not the scope
of this report.

Also note that no rpm post scriptlet will/should ever touch a config file in
the user's /home dir, and that whatever firefox default/system-wide default
browser.startup.homepage is, it won't affect a setting in prefs.js, as prefs.js
overrides system-wide settings...

I guess a note could be dropped in the errata about this issue, with a sed
command to fix it for the user, or explaining how to edit
~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile name>/prefs.js manually...
