@RM Myers - Re: "We decided on a global fallback"
Consider yourself lucky if those developer-gods will allow you to fiddle your way into that old device that you have to administer.
So many times I was forced to dig into the Internet scrapyard to get an old enough version of Firefox that would allow me to continue doing my job! Same goes for Java JRE that would happily lock me out from management interfaces of old equipment.
Memo to those programmers from Mozilla: there are people actually trying to do their job who deeply hate when a browser stands in their way.
