User Agent for 2.0 is sending 1.5 version
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem: User agent being sent in new e-mails from Thunderbird
22.214.171.124 is showing up as 126.96.36.199.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Actual results: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52)
Gecko/20060614 Fedora/184.108.40.206-1.1.fc5 Thunderbird/220.127.116.11 Mnenhy/0.7.4.666
Expected results: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US;
rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20060614 Fedora/22.214.171.124-1.fc7 Thunderbird/126.96.36.199 Mnenhy/0.7.4.666
Not only is it reporting 188.8.131.52, but fc5 as well. Did you do a local upgrade
from FC5 to F7? Thunderbird isn't on the F7 DVD so it couldn't have been
upgraded if that's the case. Double-check which version you have installed.
rpm -q thunderbird results only in one line returned...
The machine I am reporting about started as a FC4 machine and I have upgraded it
over the years using solely yum.
On another Fedora 7 machine, which was originally a FC6 DVD install (no previous
FC had been installed) I am seeing the exact same User Agent being sent out in
e-mails. The fc5 tag is also present.
I can't reproduce this; My thunderbird-184.108.40.206-1.fc7 User-agent is:
Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 (X11/20070419)
Can you try to do these steps?
- "Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> General -> Config Editor (button)"
- Search and paste here the values of these variables:
Thank you for taking the time to report this bug.
The strange thing is that I have a setting of general.useragent.override set to...
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20060614
Fedora/22.214.171.124-1.1.fc5 Thunderbird/126.96.36.199 Mnenhy/0.7.4.666
I'm wondering if one of my extensions set this? I will investigate a little
further when I have some time tonight.
OK, if you want to report here the list of your extensions maybe we can help you.
OK, I haven't had time to backup my profile and start a new one to see if the
User Agent gets modified, so here are my extensions.
Change quote and reply format
Display Mail User Agent Extension
Lightning Nightly Updater (unofficial)
Mailbox Alert (currently disabled)
Maximize Message Pane
No New Window on Double Click
I would feel OK if you guys want to close this... I feel it is not a Thunderbird
issue related to Fedora in any way. I deleted the option in my about:config and
my User Agent is set correctly.
I haven't been able to track which extension caused this. I have a feeling it
was Mailbox Alert, which I no longer need anyway (thanks TB2.0).
Closing per reporter's request.
