When we send mail messages, we include a "User-Agent" header, and its value is "Netscape 5.0". This seemed ok for beta1 until we changed the market name for the product. Now, I'm thinking we should just use the HTTP user-agent, which is easily accessible from mime_generate_headers() where we get "Netscape". The USEFOR draft (which is the origin of the User-Agent header) actually uses some of our old HTTP user agents as examples. See section 6.16 in the URL given above. Since this affects branding, I'll nominate for beta1, but I won't cry if we don't get to it.
Is this the same as one Henrik Gemal filed: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29433?
