It says this :

User agent string: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4

Homogenised form: mozilla50(windows;u;windowsnt51;fr;rv:1814)gecko20070515firefox2004

OK, it was a more complicated "priorities" problem than just reordering the browsers in the array.  I've applied a more permanent fix for browsers whose names are substrings of each other - always check the longest name first.

Detection works great for me now. 
Thanks. 

One thing, when FF has played last, you still have access to the playing icons with FF2, but you can't play.

That's... odd.  Does the "last browser to play"/win indicator icon work properly with FF2?

Yes, it says "The last browser to play was: FireFox", "You are using: FireFox 2", and the blue triangles are there (clickable but with no effect, page reloads), and in the index page, the boards where FF has played last have the green dot.

OK, thanks.  I might try and figure this out some time.
