Do not include OS in HTTP user agent depending on privacy setting #3015

This is a followup to #3009 (and #2899). Currently, information about the user's operating system is sent regardless of the privacy setting

  • by the crash reporter and
  • in the HTTP User-Agent header field.

IMO, crash reports should contain this information. They are also not sent without the user's approval.

This patch changes the HTTP user agent to not include the user's OS if the privacy setting is enabled and changes the setting's description.

RFC 7231 does not mandate the OS to be included in the user agent, see section 5.5.3.
