    I checked my user agent string and i do run a Gecko engine that run Fx18 and everything seems to be fine. I did do a profile migration when changing from 2.14==>2.15 and have turned off hw acceleration in SeaMonkey as flash plugin was causing issues in Dailymotion site
    Code:
    User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0 SeaMonkey/2.15
        Build identifier: 2013010500
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit

    I use opensuse 12.2 64bit with KDE 4.8.5, firefox from the OSS repo,
    nvidia drivers from the nvidia repo and all the latest updates.
    No problems at all.

    My FF says: 18.0.

    No problems at all (openSUSE 12.2 and it's standard KDE).
