User Agent without Gecko date causes issues (1.6b2)

I found that the default user agent lacks the date of the Gecko build. If this happens, the webpages doesn't recognize K-meleon as a desktop browser, or even worst.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.17pre) Gecko/20101130 K-Meleon/1.6.0

Adding by myself the date, the pages start to recognize K-meleon as a desktop browser.

I see...

As it wasn't messed up enough that some don't recognize any browser, now the method is changed mad smiley

Well, I made my costum, as I had, but..., well, nothing. Changes, changes and more changes.

Quote for the explanation to be at hand, even disrupted tell in the other link from your link.

6) The Gecko build date in the “Gecko/yyyymmdd” token has been frozen to 20100101 for Firefox releases. This means:

* If you want to detect whether the browser is genuine Gecko, search for the strings “Gecko” and “rv:”. The presence of these two strings will distinguish Gecko from browsers who state they are “like Gecko” in the UA string.
* If you want to determine the Gecko version, first — as noted above — consider carefully whether you can feature-sniff instead. If you must, obtain it from the “rv:x.y.z” string.

If you are presently using the build date or otherwise depending on the exact format of the “Gecko/yyyymmdd” token, stop! In the next major release of Gecko, this will be replaced by the string “Gecko/”. If you rely on the fact that this will be followed by a date string, you will break.

Oh, I forgot to comment something.

Remember what I said with certificates in that topic?

Well, the lack of the date in the user agent, is the cause. Just to aware people.
