About this Add-on
To get to BrowserMasquerades Main-menu simply click on right-mouse-button in FireFox (Context-PopUp-menu) / look in Firefox tools menu for BrowserMasquerades Icon
There is a complete online help on each dialog. The add-on relies strong on regular expressions. You can get an exiting explanation with the possibility to test your regexp on-line on the site "http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/jsref_obj_regexp.asp". For the explanation of the possible HTTP-Request-strings just do a simple "googling" or simply visit "http://www.ericgiguere.com/tools/http-header-viewer.html" (For viewing your current header-settings you can also use the FireFox Add-On "HeaderSpy" or the previous mentioned websites).
Ok, I tried to change the behaviour of this add-on in the new 1.3.1 Version. But there are some problems:
2. Some Websites/Webmails (e.g. GMX) use for their mail portal other(!) domains - hidden to the user - so that BM does send another UserAgent than desired. I still really try to figure out how I can handle this correctly - therefore you have to switch off sometimes BM.
3. Some of you wanted to have some default UAs (eg. IPhone etc.) to switch for. This take some time, 'cause I do BM not as main project.
