Not really a fc problem. But to get rid of the UA overrride string (how 
it got set in the first place to version m18 with a 2001 date I have no 
idea) you have to *shutdown mozilla* and then remove or comment out the line

/* user_pref("general.useragent.override", "my override str w/m18");

in file ~/.mozilla/default/<random chars>.slt/prefs.js

Just making this override string null or changing this file with mozilla 
running or changing it in about:config has no effect, it comes right 
back unless you *shutdown mozilla* first as per the prefs.js file heading.
