Workaround: 

general.useragent.override.github.com

Re: <https://github.com/MrAlex94/Waterfox/pull/784> the following value seems to be good for Waterfox: 

Mozilla/5.0 (rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0

For SeaMonkey, something else might be appropriate. 

Thanks
Personally I dislike adding user agents to the prefs. I rather tend to avoid sites and services which act like github. Glad that I use gitlab :)

But we need to at least mention it in the release notes. Same with google.

I think that works correctly.

This user agent works: 
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 SeaMonkey/2.53


This user agent don't work: 
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 SeaMonkey/2.53

Only if activated in the settings "Advertise Firefox compatibility" there is this problem.

Firefox/56.0 is an old version.
SeaMonkey/2.53 is not an old version.

So both are displayed correctly.

We may be able to increase the Firefox compatibility to a more recent value if the security patches of a later version have been integrated.

That is not completely correct, but not entirely wrong.
