Re : Jay Rated 5 out of 5 stars
First off, I would like to say is that the problem this addon caused to you can be solved by few clicks of the mouse and keyboard, if you are not going to do that I must conclude that you are lazy.
If you go to Menu > Customize, the button is there, ready to be dropped next to your adblock. Not every extension places buttons neatly nest to your menu button. And Screw the part where you said it's a FAQ page, to me it shows the download links completly fine. And you do not posses the patience to contact the developer of the bug, or read previous comments on this. I retraced your steps, and it took like what, 3 minutes?? That is NOT a long time and I would suggest that you stop give extension developers a hard time and develop some patience
Great add-on, but little bug with latest version Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For some reason, after the latest update the item in the menu shows the currently selected User Agent instead the add-on name. It's like if I choose "Firefox 40" the menu item under Tools menu shows "Firefox 40" instead "User Agent Switch". If I choose the default it shows "Default User Agent".
Sorry if not the proper place for it, I couldn't find how to report a bug. Anyway, still working great and very helpful.
great addons, but i want more features. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
great apps, but can you add more features like 'user-string for specified domain' or 'user-string for specified tab' only?
Interface via 'menu bar' is annoying, but it works Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Ignore the poster complaining about the lack of included agents, I mean the app provides a link to the download ... took me about 3 seconds to download and add all the agents.
The plugin works, just super tedious to use it through the "menu bar". I'm looking for an alternative only because of that.
Terrible, let me explain Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I'm giving it 2 stars because I'm sure it works but I'm just a little annoyed looking for the menu (or a button would have been nice) right next to my adblock on the right side of the browser.
So I found the menu by right clicking top of browser and enabling menu bar. Then you go to Tools > Default User Agent and choose BUT WAIT... there are no user agents to choose from.
So I go to Edit User Agents, ooo ok... a download link. Click it, nope... just a F.A.Q page!!! Here's my favorite question and answer from the f.a.q
Question: Why are there no default user agents when the extension is installed?
Answer: This is a bug....
I've already wasted enough time here ok.. I'm not gonna sit here and search google, figure out how to import something that should have been included. Super annoyed with this add-on, I suggest finding an alternative.
Works once you figure it out Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is not an out-of-the-box solution. First you have to manually add the toolbar icon. Then, for complete functionality, you will need to download and import the XML file from http://techpatterns.com/forums/about304.html (the default user-agent settings are pretty worthless).
Every time you restart Firefox the User-Agent is reset which is a shame. I needed this to view mobile-only games on my desktop. For that it works just great. 4/5 for functionality and would have been 5/5 if not for the above.
It is worth reading the following link before writing a report or filing a bug: http://chrispederick.com/work/user-agent-switcher/help/#user-agents
Minor bugs, but works OK Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Can't find default list of user agents. Have to use 'edit user agents' at least once before the list appears. But works after that. Hopefully the bug will fixed soon. Thanks.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Works fine with SeaMonkey 2.39 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I only did some short tests with SeaMonkey German 2.39 final Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0 from official download area) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 Build 20151103191810 (Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit for "Bug 1242294 - Advertise exactly Firefox when compatMode.firefox is true" <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1242294>:
Core function works fine.
List of available user agents is difficult to find.
May be shipped user agents need an update? I can't imagine for what IE6 might be useful.
appears to work well with PM Rated 4 out of 5 stars
How can I get it to SAVE the default user agent each time i start up Palemoon as it seems to keep setting it back to default ?
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Having a website tell me that my browser out of date is annoying, I had to use this to get around that. Website developers: make a website that's lightweight and runs on anything, I shouldn't have to update my browser every 6 months just to click "add to cart" or read a news article.
I use this to watch HD videos Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Probably not the normal case usage though. But this lets you get around dumb filtering decisions. One star off as you have to hunt around for agent profiles that aren't included, but those aren't terribly hard to find.
However this combined with FFMpeg, lets you watch HTML5 HD via WebM while still eking out life on a machine with WinXP as the OS. (Don't ask how I figured that out.) Apparently some content or content quality is blocked if those sites don't think you'll meet their ideal requirements, and this add-on allows for a workaround.
Works with a caveat Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works beautifully with a caveat. You also have to install user_agent_js_fixer to get to work on most web sites now-a-days.
Additional User Agents are found here: http://techpatterns.com/forums/about304.html
Request for Enhancement: allow certain web sites to be fixed to a particular user agent. (UA Control does not work with user_agent_js_fixer.)

Works flawlessly. Icon can be placed anywhere from menu > customize.
Does not work. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Makes no change to user agent string regardless of which profile you select.

Did not add button. No way to activate websites. If it takes more than five minutes to figure out how to turn it on, something is wrong.

The best user agent switcher out there. I use both the firefox and chrome versions of this addon.
Pointless, only works briefly. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The author knows the user agent resets every time Firefox is started but does nothing to deal with this.
Çok kullanışlı Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Çok kullanışlı. Ben kullanıyorum tavsiye ederim.
Still working Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For linux users this works great, no issues at all.
A list, if you don't know how to find one.
