Need to narrow down the "isUsingFirefox" function to not match Safari and Mozilla Suite, otherwise we get weird version numbers.

The problem here is detecting things that really are Firefox, like betas, while not detecting things that are Gecko but not Firefox, like Mozilla Suite. Not sure how to do that short of making a list of product names.
