No User Login possible on addons.mozilla.org

Trying to login on addons.mozilla.org with Basilisk (brand new profile) always fails:

With all my other installed browsers it works, even with Chrome:

Confirmed. But it works in the new version - from the master branch (which has not yet been released).

It's because Mozilla does user-agent sniffing like everyone else and refuses service when the useragent is "firefox but not Mozilla firefox".
