bug#58011: Jitsi, Bowser, and IceCat's user agent string

there is more to it than the user-agent string - there are
several associated config vars which affect that cloudflare
browser check - i have been patching icecat like so, since 2021,
specifically to fix this problem


in short, the solution is to "do nothing" - do not attempt to
override the defaults - parabola used to do the same for
iceweasel, until this problem appeared and the cause was
identified - after some discussion, we agreed that the generic
configuration is the most desirable anyways; because as you
noted regarding the tor button, the best way to thwart
fingerprinting is to appear to be as generic as possible
