I'm pretty sure I created a user.js in the correct place, and -very-
sure it contains the above line, but I see no effect on the behavior
of thunderbird. What should this line do for me? Show me a 'UserAgent'?
I must be missing something. (user.js was placed in a subfolder of
.mozilla-thunderbird in my home directory, and yes. all mods were done
with tbird not running)
