Exactly what I was looking for.
It works and I can finally access a specific website in the language I require. I would like an interface which lets me set different locales for different websites.
However, it is sufficient for my rare need to access this website and it helped me a lot. Thank you.
Wow! It's just what I was looking for. Thanks!
very handy. Hotkeys would be welcome though!
This works well, on some tabs. On other tabs, it doesn't change the Accept-Language header at all. Maybe there is a e10s-multi incompatibility?
Works as advertised in Firefox 53.0 after the author pushed a bug fix. See https://github.com/callahad/quick-accept-language-switcher/issues/4.
Presentation for handling things like "q=0" (disallowed languages), multiple accepted languages, and invalid header strings could be improved, but those issues are merely cosmetic.
Firebug still shows Accept-Language
en-US, while I set "fr". FF52. Seemed simple and right tool, but does not work.
Sorry about this -- there was a bug in Firefox 52-54 which broke this add-on. I've implemented a workaround for version 1.1, which has been submitted to AMO for review.
And it is open source :-)
Does exactly what I wanted, thanks for the great work
As already mentioned dropdown of values history will be great. Also it would be great to set specific values for specific domains.
And ability to add presets to the options for needed combinations. Use that presets in the drop-down menu.
Works great but question is why are there two values? For example en-US, en?
The Accept-Language header accepts a list of possible languages... "en-US, en" is probably superfluous, but something like "en-US, en;q=0.9, fr;q=0.8" would mean "I want American English most, then any other English, but would accept French if English isn't available."

It occasionally disappears from my toolbar, and the customize menu can't bring it back. Not sure what triggers it to come back again.
I've updated it to a WebExtension, which should fix that.
...but, as a lazy user, living in 2015, it would be nice to have a selection pulldown to choose from.
Maybe some user editable pre selections, I can choose from...
Works great, but we need a way to get back to the original value
Done! In 0.9.1, if you erase the value in the entry box and hit return, it will reset your Accept-Languages header to your locale's default.
Does what it says, but a few small tweaks would greatly improve the user experience.
The ability to reset the value back to what it was before I typed something in would be nice. Also an option to refresh the page after changing the value would be hugely helpful!
Thanks for the ideas -- I didn't realize people other than myself were relying on this :) I'll definitely put some time into the UI/UX soon.
