user_pref("general.useragent.override.google.com", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0"); (I run linux, but let's make things difficult for malicious sites). Anyhow Google Drive and maps.google.com were happy with the browser. But since the useragent had changed, Google Drive asked me for the recovery email when I logged in to Google Drive. And it also sent a cautionary email to me. Just a heads up, in case people get scared. When ever you change your useragent and log in, Google assumes the login is coming from a different device. Here's a redacted version of the email...
