A few years ago, Check began detecting Orfox via its User Agent String with [0] and then [1]. As it turns out, now we want the logic in [0] again.

Orfox should have a new release coming out soon, so ideally Check will correctly detect it. Originally I wrote a patch that only detects the new Orfox UAS, but this version is nicer and detects both the old version and the new version. Someone (maybe me) should file a new ticket in a few weeks (or sooner) for ripping out the old Orfox-specific pattern.

Thoughts on how long this will take to deploy?

Juts wondering if I should hold the Orfox release to wait for it.
