Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040411 Firefox/0.8.0+
Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 0.6a (20040420)

Thunderbird's About box has "Mozilla" in the image, above "Thunderbird";
Firefox's should also.

Firefox displays the browser's UA string, e.g.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040411
Firefox/0.8.0+
Thunderbird displays the version, e.g.
version 0.6a (20040420)
The latter is more user-friendly; about: provides more detail if required.

Thunderbird's copyright blurb is grey; compared to Firefox's current (black)
blurb, it stands out less and just plain looks nicer.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
hiding the UA string is a bad idea, IMO, ccing bart for VIT stuff

OK, it's probably best to keep the UA string.

Perhaps then, for consistency's sake, the UA could be added to Tb's About?
(although I'm not sure it'd be as useful as in Firefox).
Summary: Firefox About box should look like Thunderbird's → Firefox's About box should look more like Thunderbird's
