Monkey general .useragent .override .github .com for Git Hub
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.4 Lightning/5.4 At GitHub: > Please note that GitHub no longer supports old versions of Firefox. > We recommend upgrading to the latest Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox. Non-working features include the Edit menu option for a comment. 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. FRG

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.
