Firefox 99 User Agent issue for iOS
Hello, many developers loyal to FireFox use our Firefox product on iOS. For this reason we strive to make our product perform well with Firefox.
This is difficult due to user agent reporting for Firefox 99 on iOS 15.3.1 as:
Check these examples all from 15.3.1:
iOS 15.3.1 Firefox:
“Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_4) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.1 Safari/605.1.15”
iOS 15.3.1 Chrome:
“Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; CPU OS 15_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) CriOS/98.0.4758.97 Mobile/15E148 Safari/604.1”
iOS 15.3.1 Safari:
“Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_6) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/15.3 Safari/605.1.15”
Firefox does not correctly name the base OS 15.3. It is difficult to take advantage of features specific to 15.3+ platform using Firefox.
Other than that it is excellent. Firefox remains a favourite of all developers.
