Great to be able to spoof the UA. I use it with UAControl 0.1.3.1.1-signed (http://neko.tsugumi.org/UAControl.html)
The current version (1.3.1) blocks the full screen mode in youtube videos (the one toggled from the video controls). Is that by design (necessity)?
EDIT: In https://www.youtube.com I use
"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/36.0.1985.143 Safari/537.36 "
that is set as the custom "Default for sites not listed" in UAControl 0.1.3.1.1-signed.
I can toggle the state (dis/en-abled) of the in-player full screen control, just by en/dis-abling UAControl 1.3.1-signed and reloading the page.
Other data: FF 40.0.3 on Mac OS 10.10.5 (14F27).
Can finally use many sites that still unfairly block Firefox.
Hi thanx for this plugin!
Does it also work with "random agent spoofer" addon? where can i test it ?
I have to disable it since it stops lycos.com mail composer from working:
TypeError: stateObj is undefined driver:1686 (https://webmail.lycos.com/wm2/driver?nimlet=deggetfolder)
I'd like to fix this bug, but I can't create an account at Lycos Webmail, it's not available in my country. Could you please create a new account and give me the password? Please use leandrotp22 as the user name. Thanks.
As godspeed noted before, it would be useful to change the.about:config option -> general.oscpu.override to coordinate with the value of the selected UserAgent string. For example, if the string is "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0" then simply copy the "Windows NT 6.1; WOW64" part to an about:config setting called "general.oscpu.override". Very simple, and one COULD do it themselves, but implementing an automated manner reduces mistakes, forgetfulness, etc.
Further, but trickier, is to set the about:config option for "general.platform.override" to coordinate with the oscpu value. Continuing from the above example, "Windows NT 6.1; WOW64" is equivalent to Windows 7 x64, so the "general.platform.override" value would simply be "Win64".
I understand that this example was easier than extracting the value for some unix setup running a googlebot user-agent, but it still shouldn't be so hard, and makes for a complete functionality to the addon. Oh, check out - http://browserspy.dk/os.php - for help detecting the correct values of the above strings.
Finally, I would like to say that for the vast majority of websites, simply changing the UA-string (and related), disabling/clearing cookies, and such remedial steps is sufficient to FOOL them, for big name sites such as Gooogel -- changing these values wouldn't be a drop-in-the-bucket to prevent your browser/OS/IP, etc being fingerprinted. For those interested in how easily their browser is fingerprinted (or how unique it is), see - https://panopticlick.eff.org/ - or for the paranoid, see - http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/12059/circumventing-device-fingerprinting -.
Thanks for considering making this add-on more complete. Please reply here as you don't list a support-site or email.
With UAControl, this addon only changes navigator.userAgent when the mode is NOT . So I've set my default UAControl method to a 'blank' custom useragent which is just a space (' '), and only when a custom is set does it change navigator.userAgent. But I'd rather use the method of UAControl and send no useragent header at all. Would it be possible to make this script blank/null navigator.userAgent also when UAControl is set to block?
Thanks for reporting, the error is fixed in the new version. Download it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/218734/user_agent_js_fixer-1.3-fx.xpi
THE BIGGEST PROBLEM:
So whatever OS you set in your user agent, the navigator.oscpu call will still detect your real OS (unless of course you change it manually in about:config).
And there you are... easier to identify than people with no fake at all.
I suggest the developer fix this pretty fast.
Excellent. Thank you.
A must-have addon for UAcontrol and/or User Agent Switcher users.
You need this addon.
thx for this useful add-on!
If the code is open, you can see and use the sample?
new Date().toLocaleString(); // 4 February 2012 г. 00:00:00
123456.789.toLocaleString(); // 123 456,789
Поставил (версию 1.1) к расширению UAControl и теперь при разрешённых скриптах сайты видят тот user-agent который я им показываю, а реальный остаётся надёжно скрыт.
То что надо, этого как раз не хватало! Спасибо!
