I'm running Debian GNU/Linux, where Firefox is called Iceweasel due to licensing restrictions regarding redistribution. How do I ID as "Firefox/Windows XP service pack 2" instead?

Try to install addon named User Agent Switcher. Then you should be able to select between several predefined User Agent strings or define your own. This website may be useful for this task.

This string is most likely you have been looking for: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3
