11.2.0, os20: Browse user agent does not reveal it is OLPC or Sugar

In previous releases, Browse used to send the string "OLPC" to let the server know this is an XO. Now it looks like a generic Linux Firefox browser to the server.

To verify, enter "javascript:navigator.userAgent" in the address bar.

This breaks e.g. viewing Etoys projects on the Squeakland website (http://http://squeakland.org/showcase/everyone/)
