Hello, just an ordinary user here. I am using Firefox long ago, 'till I switched just today. I ran basic security tests until I got to http://whatismybrowser.com. It says that I'm still running on FF78 but actually I am on FF83 [https://whatismybrowser.com/w/N7QEGDA] .I refred firefox and reset to the default settings still, the problem persists. What is this all about? What am I should do? Thank you so much, I would appreciate your help.

Do you have enabled "Resist Fingerprinting" if you check "Resist Fingerprinting" on the about:config page as this affects the user agent?

  • privacy.resistFingerprinting = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
