Not compatible with quantum
Not compatible with Firefox Quantum
i like this
Great extension. Thanks! I would really appreciate to see a Quantum-compatible version in the future. For the time being, I've switched to Firefox ESR, but it's only a valid solution for few months...
Best add on
Works very well. It also works with Pale Moon. It would be a good idea to send it to the Pale Moon extensions site as well.
Fire Fox Quantum57.0ver Please give me correspondence.
My focus until now has been on my other extension, Web Developer. I do hope to work on User Agent Switcher, but it will require essentially being rewritten from scratch so I’m not sure when I am going to have the time to work on it honestly.
I've been using this for a long time and hope it will be ported to webextension some day. Currently does not support multiprocess, but still a great add-on.
it may or may not work properly .. didn't test only installed so I could see if there was an option to selectively switch UA on specific sites.
For the record, I'm looking to do this for any google entity so that I can block their f**ked up new sign in page. They use the agent string as one of the keys for presenting their latest "new" login page, which permanently associates the login rather than let the user select or not, the "remember me" check box.
If you add this feature (auto-spoof list or auto-switch based on host/domain) in the future, please send an update my way and I'll install and update a review then.
Great way to change what you see from web servers
don't work in FF 53.0.2
the utility of this switcher add-on in my case is to watch the html5 video online. Some video sites provide flash contents by default, i have to switch my palemoon browser to IOS-chrome to get html5 video contents, but often it won't play, leaving a black player "windows" in the browser, as if no contents transfered. After this i have to switch to some others, including obsolate windows-ie6 , and refresh the page, and the video could play
The user agent is a trivial to change setting (via general.useragent.override). The whole point of having an extension, for me, would be to conveniently "bookmark" a bunch of user agents, while keeping a similar behavior as with general.useragent.override, ie once you set it, you keep it until you change it back.
Unfortunately, every time you restart the browser, the extension switches back to the default user agent. Spoofing failed....
