 We won't ship the same User Agent for any Tor Browser version possible.
 We'll adapt it from major to major Firefox versions. There are no plans
 either to allow user agent overriding. That's not implemented in Firefox
 (anymore) and does not serve any fingerprinting protection. If you have a
 bad guard that is able to control the exit you are using as well, you have
 essentially lost. There is no need to play tricks with TCP fingerprinting
 and User Agent matching.

 Thus, I think this ticket is essentially a wontfix.
