What, exactly, is wrong with what Google is doing? I think you're wasting your time here because Camino 2.1.2 and Firefox 3.6.28 are, in fact, exactly the same thing from a webdev perspective, and there's no disputing the fact that Firefox 3.6.28 is an "older version".

Google is identifying Camino as Firefox.  I don't want to waste anybody's time.  The Camino help section suggests that when I find a site that suggests that i am using an outdated version of Firefox I should "consider complaining to the site’s webmaster or filing a Tech Evangelism bug against the site."   I did both.  If this is inappropriate I stand corrected.

Yeah, I know what they're doing, and I know what our site tells you to do, but I think in this case, it's probably not worth anyone's time -- yours, mine, anyone else's -- to try to convince Google that they need to change. They're slowly dropping support for Gecko 1.9-based browsers as it is :(
Camino project has ended. Google won't support browsers running Gecko 1.9.
