STR:

set general.useragent.override.forums.mozillazine.org to
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0)
2) Tools > Web Developer > Allow Remote Debugging
3) Tools > Web Developer > Browser Toolbox
4) in Browser Toolbox, select Network tab
5) in the browser window, load http://forums.mozillazine.org/ and watch the network requests

All requests to forums.mozillazine.org have the custom IE 8 user-agent string

Actual results:
Only the first request (GET /  Cause: document) has the IE 8 user-agent string; all others have the default user-agent string.
