UA string no longer contains patch level version number

Description

The user agent (UA) string of Firefox no longer exposes the security patch level version number in order to mitigate fingerprinting risks. Therefore, if unscheduled Firefox 16.0.1 is released, the version number in the UA string will just be 16.0 instead of 16.0.1.
