Firefox Version 17.0.1 is identifying itself as "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0" and thereby triggers bug-like behavior.

Posted

I am running Firefox Version 17.0.1, yet it's falsely identifying itself as "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0" thereby causing bug-like difficulties at "deviantART" http://layaboutjoe.deviantart.com/ and is even mis-identifying itself here. What can be done to fix this problem? Your helpful advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and best wishes to you. R.S.V.P.

Try to read Websites say that Firefox is outdated or incompatible even though it's the latest version

Thank you very much, Tylerdowner. Those instructions have solved the problem! The browser is now identifying itself as "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0" and I'm happy.
