Data from Mozilla shows that Windows 10 dethroned Windows 7, it may be wise (or not) to thus consider switching the TB UA to the Windows 10 one.

(By the way seeing TB use the UA of the most privacy invading version of Windows to date to help spoof things up would be funnily enough pretty ironic for the M$ fanbois)

this is already upstreamed at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1511434

meanwhile, until the next ESR, then there is no entropy difference

Yes, we won't switch now but will get this when switching to esr68. Thus, nothing to do on our side.
