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....
This addon works, but I remove one star because it is not possible to set default agent - I have to switch it every time I restart the browser, This is really annoying. Another star is removed because author knows about this problem for a long time - and do nothing. At least - add the option to load default agent automatically at start.
Agent switch top but firefox Does not end clean anymore
Works as expected. Easy to use.
This add-on has saved me more than once when needing to get downloads for different platforms.
The only feature I find lacking is an automatic page reload when the user agent has been switched. Not a big deal, but would save a little bit of time.
"If you go to Menu > Customize, the button is there ..."
Doesn't support the modern firefox feature -- multi-process usage to effectively distribute the load.
Pls add to mobile update I have list adding to mobile
addon needs update. Look obsolete.
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.
