Wow wow, I got it working! Apparently it might not check anything else than the user agent string after all, EXCEPT it also saves the failed state in the web.whatsapp.com cookie!

So this is what you have to do (possibly the Iron Config and Backup tool is not necessary:
- create a shortcut or launch Iron like the one bolded below
- quit Iron if running, launch it from the with the new launch string
- Iron/Settings, search for content settings, Cookies, See all cookies and site data
- search for whatsapp, trash the item web.whatsapp.com
- now WhatsApp works in Iron!

The launch string is this or similar to this (user agent being Opera's 2019-02-07 version): "C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron (64-Bit)\chrome.exe" --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.102 Safari/537.36 OPR/57.0.3098.116"

WhatsApp Web only checks for the word "Iron" in the last part of the User Agent string.

So I put the word "Iron" in another part of the string:

--user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; Iron x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/71.0.3700.0 Safari/537.36"

and all goes ok. :ironvschrome :ironvssafari
