Firefox continues to indicate I am using Windows 8. I have NEVER used Windows 8 in my liftetime. I use Windows 10 and after locating the program compatibility location to change to Windows 10, Windows 10 isn't an option. I changed my OS to 10 in your box below. Why? I don't understand this.

In your Question Details > More System Details your User Agent appears to be Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; Win64; x64; rv:105.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/105.0

The NT 6.2 identifies as Windows 8 as per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_NT

Either your User Agent was modified by an Extension or manually by preference in Firefox or you are running Firefox 105.0 in Windows 8 Compatibility Mode on Windows 10 for some reason. My bet is on compatibility mode.

Check that you do not run Firefox in compatibility mode. You can open the Properties of the Firefox desktop shortcut via the right-click context menu and check the "Compatibility" tab. Make sure that all items are deselected in the "Compatibility" tab of the Properties window.

James and Cor-el

Yes this is my user agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; Win64; x64; rv:105.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/105.0 (Selected from your link)

BUT, it doesn't matter what version of Firefox I use now or have used, It has shown Windows 8 since, I believe, when Firefox updated to 100 or earler.

I have checked the compatibility mode as instructed by Cor-el and ALL of the items are DESELECTED.

I have gone into Windows Troubleshooting Settings/Program Compatibility and I have selected several different programs such as MS Edge, Firefox, Acrobat, Trend Micro Maximum Security, Word and others. I selected "Try Recommended Settings" it showed Windows Compatibility Mode: Windows 8 on EVERY SINGLE program I selected.

Then I selected "TroubleShoot Program" then was asked "Which Version did this Program Run on Before"? OPTIONS: Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista (Service Pack 2), BUT WINDOWS 10 NOT AN OPTION.

I wouldn't know how to change USER AGENT if my life depended on it. Thanks for your patience while I have taken several hours to check as many locations and options as possible from your recommendations and my searching.

By the way, I still Cannot get into Firefox without "Permission to Allow this Program to Make Changes to YOUR computer". WHY IS THIS HAPPENING AND COULD IT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH Windows 8 not 10??

Thank you, Rhonda

Have you tried disabling Trend Micro and rebooting to see if you have the same issue?
