Development builds of Firefox use a different name, "Bon Echo" for Firefox 2 and "Minefield" for the latest development version (Firefox 3).  Both are currently detected as Mozilla.  Also, Firefox 3 will be called Gran Paradiso.

Bon Echo:
User agent string: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3pre) Gecko/20070305 BonEcho/2.0.0.3pre
Homogenised form: mozilla50(x11;u;linuxi686;en-us;rv:1813pre)gecko20070305bonecho2003pre

Minefield:
User agent string: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a3pre) Gecko/20070307 Minefield/3.0a3pre
Homogenised form: mozilla50(x11;u;linuxi686;en-us;rv:19a3pre)gecko20070307minefield30a3pre

Gran Paradiso's useragent should be similar to Minefield's current one.

I wanted to change "(Firefox 3)" to "(currently Firefox 3)".

What's with the custom forum software and apparent inability to edit posts (!)?

Maybe you could use a regular expression like /mozilla.+geckod+./ to detect unknown Gecko-based browsers (with something after "Gecko/NNNNNNNN" as "Unknown Mozilla-based" or something?  Or just let it fall back to "Unknown"?
