That is one heck of a version string:

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_4) AppleWebKit/536.25 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Safari/536.25

My feeling is that the default user agent name for FX should be clearly FX and well defined, not null. It should be exactly what would be available to JS code executing within the WebEngine.
