Microsoft Download Center blocking Deer Park users

I noticed bug 297177 this morning. Apparently users of the Firefox 1.1 Alpha (Deer Park) can't access the Microsoft Download Center. It was also sent in to Reporter, so I decided to investigate a bit.

It worked fine when I pretended to be MSIE, and it worked fine when I set it to Opera. It worked with Firefox 1.0. I eventually worked out that the Microsoft script is failing on the Gecko version of "1.8b2". Remove the "b", and it works.

A bit pathetic that the script crashes out if the User-Agent isn't exactly as expected, but meh, at least it doesn't seem to be intentional.
