My FF56 user agent is: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:50.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/50.0"

Expected user agent: "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0"

Note the end where it incorrectly identifies itself as 50.0 rather than 56. This does not happen when I download FF 56 from and extract/run the binary from there, getting the expected user agent.

Additional info:
Name : firefox
Version : 56.0.2-1
Architecture : x86_64paca
