Hi , this “browser” is the current Thunderbird release, a mail and RSS client. Its capabilities are no different from Firefox 78. How about you detect Gecko rather than detecting Firefox?

Better yet, do feature detection instead of UA sniffing: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/do

Just realized that the Twitter server responds with “400 Bad Request” here. That’s IMHO a very unconventional way of saying: “Your request is fine but I don’t like the client you are using.”

@WPalant Does Thunderbird still depend on the (pre-quantum) engine? If yes, thats a valid reaction of twitter to block it.

@fabiscafe No, it doesn’t. It’s built on the latest ESR branch of Gecko. That’s at most seven versions behind Firefox and same as Tor Browser.
