Thanks for all your help, this worked like a charm! I got the userAgent from

Whether to do it for all web-requests then I'm not sure - this is related thing as far as I can see.

It shouldn't do any harm to use the same useragent for all requests though
(although you might want to check if iPad latest iOS from Safari is
different from iPhone latest from Safari and switch on the machine if so).

I'd recommend removing this mitigation if/when starts behaving
normally again though as you don't want to have to keep that up to date lest
it cause problems for other websites.
