User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.4

Steps to reproduce:

when : suddenly (about 3 weeks ago)
then :

i go to google homepage to do a search
i enter a text with many words


Actual results:

the render is strange, like the space into the input field were reduced or shrink.
So the layout of the list content is totaly unsorted, bad display
see my screenshot1


Expected results:

the correct rend should be like firefox.
see my screenshot2
Google does incorrect browser sniffing. Nothing we can do here. Please use another search engine or use a generic Firefox user agent for google. Check the support groups how to set a user agent or use an extension like prefbar (7.1.1 works)

Google does not like 2.xy version (this number is too small for Goggle).
