From User-Agent: XML-RPC

firefox-1.0.7-1.2.fc4 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 4 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 11:46:57 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
