Dear Tor Developers,

Mozilla Firefox 4.0.1 with Torbutton 1.3.3-alpha installed is not masking the User Agent to the default Tor User Agent. Instead it reports the correct OS and Firefox 4.0.1 User Agent.

I ran the User Agent test at the following sites:

Please fix this before the final release!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Thanks for the great software!

Hi dennismckernan,

I guess you think that Torbutton 1.3.3-alpha is not masking because in your case it matches the real world settings (windows + firefox 4), but if you use Torbutton 1.3.3-alpha on FreeBSD/Firefox 3.6.x
it will also report the following User-Agent String:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0

so I would say this is not a bug. The UA String in Torbutton just changed from v1.3.2-alpha -> 1.3.3-alpha
