Hello. I'm using Firefox 119 for MAC OS. However my device is labeled as Windows 10 Firefox. I don't have any Windows software labeled anywhere. I have signed out, restarted device and still no change. When I log into a website from Firefox, my "authorized device" is recognized as Windows Firefox.

Please advise, Thank you

The privacy.resistFingerprinting setting in about:config changes the user agent to Windows. Extensions may also alter the user agent like User-Agent Switcher.

Enabling RFP should no longer change the platform as reported via the user agent, so that can't be the problem.

Where do you see this device label?

Can you attach a screenshot?
