It's interesting it thinks i'm on FF 4. I guess FF has updated faster than a snow melting in Florida and it cannot keep up. But FF4, come one!

Did I tell you about the time I inadvertently locked out an early-adopter of MSIE 10? Yup: code said MSIE [1-4] without trailing \. or \b. If they're using ::yawn:: UA detection rather than feature detection, they could easily have something that says "Firefox [23]" left over from, uh, 2011 or whenever FF5 was released.

:: shuffling papers ::

Oh, ###. I meant that as a joke, but quick detour to FF Updates List reveals that my own computer went to FF5 in mid-August 2011, followed by FF6 scarcely a week later.
