from firefox about: page

Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.0)
Gecko/20100105 SUSE/3.6rc1-1.5 Firefox/3.6

This identifier causes wikipedia statistics to show
Linux SUSE 3.5
Linux SUSE 3.0

where other operating systems like ubuntu really show their version numbers.

I suggest to change the build identifier to read e.g.
Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.0)
Gecko/20100105 SUSE/11.2 Firefox/3.6rc1-1.5

.. if the browser was built for opensuse 11.2
