Can we keep "navigator.vendor" a constant value

In new Firebird it changed from
navigator.vendor="Firebird"
to
navigator.vendor="Mozilla Firebird"

see http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=323714#323714 to know Ext
developers issue.

a similar bug is bug# 230416



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
This will likely remain constant in official mozilla.org builds after 1.0, the
point of the preferences is to allow for identification of modified products
(i.e. MultiZilla).  Using this value is not a recommended way of discovering the
product in question for this reason.

See http://www.mozilla.org/docs/dom/domref/dom_window_ref50.html for more details.

This bug requests to keep navigator.vendor constant. This is impossible, per the
specs. INVALID. File a bug (and mention it here) on creating another, clean
means to identify Firefox and ideally also generic xul apps.
