Recently i read how websites should identify firefox by gecko version, and not firefox version. However, a quick search on google with the words 'how to detect firefox' only shows tutorials that suggest to search for 'firefox' in the user agent string.

Perhaps a idea to write the owners of these tutorials and ask them to correct this.

So we need a list of these tutorials to track it. I suggest we file a new TE bug for every tut. which blocks this bug.
Not tracking anything. Meta bug. Closing.
