+Update the htpdate User Agent
+We want to use the same user agent in our htpdate script (see the
+[Time syncing design](
+for more info on that) as in Tor Browser.
+To find out the User Agent of the new Tor Browser:
+1. Start Tor Browser (outside of Tails, if there is no ISO yet with the new
+ Tor Browser)
+2. Open the Network tab in the Developer Tools (Ctrl+Shift+E)
+3. Load a website (e.g. <>)
+4. Select one of the GET requests in the Developer Tools
+5. Scroll down to "User-Agent" in the "Request headers" section
+Now replace the User Agent in `config/chroot_local-includes/etc/default/htpdate.user-agent` with the one you found above.
