This is clearly a bug in a web-site and not the browser, since the
web-site is supposed to be testing for specific functionality, instead
of any specific browsers.  Please complain to site owners.

Nonetheless, if you require modification of the user-agent string,
IIRC, this could be adjusted in Mozilla web-browsers in about:config
with the general.useragent.override variable (or some other variables
underneath general.useragent, if you don't require complete user-agent
string overwriting).
