User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0
Build ID: 20121031065642

Steps to reproduce:

On site http://www.gamereplays.org/ which uses IPB 2.0.X for forums, since the update to 17 beta, quick edit hasn't been working. I tried disabling all addons, I tried creating a fresh new profile with no addons and quick edit still didn't work. It works without a problem in FF 16.

To reproduce this bug, you need to:
1. register an account on http://www.gamereplays.org/community/index.php?act=Reg&CODE=00
2. once registered go into e.g. New Members forum http://www.gamereplays.org/community/index.php?showforum=7
3. create a new topic and submit it
4. now while viewing your post, click on the Edit button.

In FF 16 and earlier this works without any problems.

Actual results:

A new page loads to edit that post.

Expected results:

A small popup should come up allowing you to chose between Quick Edit and Full Edit.

Because the website is doing bad UA sniffing. If you spoof the UA (to be Chrome e.g.), it works fine, you're able to see the small pop-up with "Quick Edit" and "Full Edit".

It's due to bug 588909 that was in FF15/16 nightlies but has been backout.

For the record, use this test account:

Press "edit" on this thread:
I don't think we need to track this, since (1) IPB thankfully falls back to loading the standard editing page and (2) this needs to be fixed on their side.

The trial is just for no ads trial, nothing more. The site is 100% free.

There is nothing to fix in next versions of Firefox, it's a website issue that applies bad user agent sniffing.
Read the whole bug report, all is explained.

I have resolut the probleme to employ user agent switcher 

but I not understand why has the 17th version firefox decide to change the manner of managing to user agent

what mean that everything the users ip.board v2.2. X have to close their forum?!

firefox is not any more compatible 100 % what is discouraging...

thanks for your help by ;)

UA changes should be backout in a chemspill release 17.0.1, see bug 815743.
Is it still an issue?

I do not have an account on GameReplays.org but I would imagine it has been fixed.
