Seen while testing Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008051906 Minefield/3.0pre

STR:
1. With a new profile and flash installed, visit the usatoday site.
2. Observe the text on the right hand side of the page: "To view this presentation, you need to install the flash plugin"

Expected: The ad would show. It shows in IE fine.

This XP machines has Shockwave Flash 9.0 r124 installed.
I see the same thing running the equivalent Mac Tiger nightly so changing to all. I do not see this using the RC1 candidate on Leopard.

It's tripping on the UA string.  Change the UA string in Minefield to Firefox and it works.  So this is not something to worry about.
