Re user agents. My financial institution recognizes Linux as a response. Their comment "Too many Linux versions to stipulate that we recognize them each."  
Ditto for other systems such as Mac and android. If the browser is not recognized, it is considered insecure, and the bank's system will not proceed with communication.

Thanks, Paul.
A few minor suggestions:

- In the section about 'Cookies and other Browser information', it 
might be useful to mention that the 'User Agent ID' of Browsers that 
are packaged in Fedora is configured to identify the system as running 

- In the 'IP addresses' section, we might want to mention that Fedora 
'pings home' to determine network connectivity.
