So, time to disable the advertisement again. Don't like that.
Why "Advertising firefox compatibility" did not create this UA string:
"Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:59.0) Gecko/2018010400 Firefox/59.0" ?
Difficult to understand this question. At least for me. Advertising adds
Firefox/59.0 to the UA, before the SeaMonkey part. Without advertising:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:59.0) Gecko/2018010400 SeaMonkey/2.56a1-h
He seems to be asking why the Firefox spec doesn't /replace/ the
SeaMonkey spec. Some incompetent browser sniffers apparently ignore the
Firefox spec if the UA string also contains a SeaMonkey spec, and we
should be so brilliant as to guess what stupid mistakes they will make
and work around them.
