FF bug 792054 activated the legacy User Agent string (like previously done for Moodle) for some possibly-broken online banking sites. The change landed on Aurora and Beta, too. I think non-working banking sites are bad, so let's follow suit(e), shall we?

Unfortunately I don't think I can test this since I'm not a customer of any of these banks. :-/
