I am using FireFox v65.0.1 with the latest macOS Mojave. When I go to some websites, I get a message that my browser is outdated. If I go to whatismybrowser.com, I get the message that I am using Opera version 38. Why is my FireFox browser being misidentified.

User agent string wrong, about:config claims it's the default one

My UserAgent string is wrong. It has the wrong OS and the wrong Firefox version. I ran into the article explaining how to reset it, but when I search for "useragent", I don't see any of the suggested preferences (see also screenshots).

It might be relevant that I had the UAControl extension installed, until it got automatically disabled due to the switch to WebExtensions. That might have had the "wrong" user agent selected when it was disabled. But I still can't find where it was set or how to reset it.

Firefox has the wrong user-agent set

It looks like Firefox has the wrong user-agent set. I've made a few changes to about:config that I found on privacytools.io but none of them had anything to do with the user-agent. I read through Mozilla's "reset the default user-agent" article but none of the mentioned settings are in my about:config so there's nothing to reset. I would create them myself but I don't know what they should be set to (the article only says to click the "reset" button next to them). I'm running Ubuntu Linux but it seems Firefox is telling websites I'm running Windows...for proof see the screenshot attached to this post.

Hmm...it seems this page detected that I'm running a variation of Linux although no other pages (such as the one in the screenshot) could. What can I do?

Edit: it looks like this page says my user agent is correct (it shows Linux), however many many other sites on the internet say I'm running Windows. I'm really confused now.
