My little Slackware icon has disappeared in my posts since upgrade to Firefox 3.6...
I know this is a trivial matter, but down in the lower left of each person's post is a tiny little icon showing their OS.
I'm quite proud that sometimes, when I'm posting from my old Sun E4000, my posts show up with a little Solaris icon down there, and until I upgraded to Firefox 3.6, my posts (from Firefox on my Slackware 13.0 workstation) indeed showed a little Slackware ball.
At the moment, I'm making this post from Chrome, so we'll see if LQ picks up my OS & Distro for the purposes of this post, but since something appears to be, for lack of a better term, broken with regards to my new Firefox when making posts. It shows the head of the Linux penguin, but no Slacky icon.
I know that this is an exceedingly trivial matter, but..., Does anyone know how I can rectify this?

Thanks jostber, but I didn't seem to have that issue, since I upgraded all of my java and even created a package for NetBeans 6.8 from a SlackBuild as soon as it came out.
I like to keep some things as current as possible, and others I wait for the feedback on their stability
The only real issue I had was with jnlp files and JavaWS, which I undertook to repair asap
I noticed one of the comments at the link you provided me said that the reason Patrick disabled auto-updates of Firefox was for the obvious breakage reasons we're discussing here
At least I know I won't need to upgrade Firefox for a while, unless another vulnerability presents itself - I noticed that I received another Slackware-Security notice regarding SeaMonkey, and expected a Firefox update to follow the other day, but haven't received any such emailings in that regard yet.
hm... I can't help but assume that, judging by your little penguinhead icon, that you're using google-chrome right now
Anyway, thanks for the alternate method, and I guess we'll just have to live with the Chrome useragent issue, although it does recognize the OS, if not the Distro
Increasingly, I'm using Chrome more and more sort of as my "Google OS" client, since I take advantage of a lot of Google tools like wave, calendar, gmail, checkout, google voice (I have binaries for Gizmo5 if you have a uid over there BTW, and a few invites left for GV), etc., although their Google docs really sucks for anything but images and pdf files
Oh, and thanks for the helping hand on that scanner issue I was having for a couple of days there too dive, It was driving me crazy (Still not COMPLETELY sure exactly what particular thing actually fixed everything LOL).
