Web app offers wrong macOS Teams Installer

I've just noticed that the teams web app (and teams.microsoft.com/download) offer the wrong format macOS installer when using a browser other than Safari (confirmed on Firefox 65, at least). When using Safari, the sites offer the correct .pkg installer for macs. When using Firefox, however, it offers the old .dmg format installer that has been discontinued. For some bizarre reason the sites seem to be doing user agent detection and offering a different installer for different browsers.

Hi @WGB2018

I have tested this morning. To confirm

- On Edge (41.16299.820.0) it is .pkg (teams_osx.pkg)
- On Chrome (71.0.3578.98) it is .pkg (teams_osx.pkg)
- On Firefox (64.0.2) it is .pkg (teams_osx.pkg)

Recommendation is that you raise this
> Via Uservoice https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/category/182881-developer-platform
> Raise on social (I.e. Twitter) and copy in #microsoftteams and @microsoftteams with screenshot

Clearly, the installer should not be in the discontinued .dmg format.

Hope that answers your question.

Best, Chris
