so the change shouldn't mess up other sites.
In some cases it will, though.
The global preference will take priority over everything else, but the browser has some "built-in" overrides which are used to make some site work without having to manually add them. You can see them in your picture of about:config.
By setting a global override you might trip on those sites as the user agent is different than the "known good" one.

No they will because there was a reason the preference was renamed. To give morons a chance to rethink their reasons for using it. But morons are gonna moron around. So leave them I guess.

Maybe we need to make the global preference temporary and reset it every start. Just depends on how stupid people want to be.
The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote.
