Isn't it wrong that the user agent string is
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020304
when PSM is not installed.

shouldn't it be:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; N; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020304

according to:
http://www.mozilla.org/build/revised-user-agent-strings.html
* N for no security
* U for strong security
* I for weak security

Mass reassign ssaux bugs to nobody
Assignee: ssaux → nobody
Mass change "Future" target milestone to "--" on bugs that now are assigned to
nobody.  Those targets reflected the prioritization of past PSM management.
Many of these should be marked invalid or wontfix, I think.
Target Milestone: Future → ---

PSM is no longer optional, but contained in the builds by default.

Is it still possible to compile Mozilla without crypto?

If yes: we should fix this bug

If no: this bug is invalid

Since the encryption strength has been removed from the UA-string, does this still need to be addressed?
I bet it doesn't matter now.
