Work out-of-box on FF 31 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
No idea why there are negative reviews. It works out-of-box for me on Mac/Win with FF 31.
Kept turning itself off - defeating the purpose Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Kept turning itself off, or back to the default (my true user agent string) which defeated my purpose.
Not only didn't work, it locked up my browser Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Tried to reset the UA string via this utility. Then tried to enter FF options to clear cookies and cache as is recommended. Browser locked. Had to kill it with the Program Manager. Repeat sequence - results in locked browser. Had to remove the utility then reboot to get rid of this problem. As another user noted, there is no general.useragent.override in my config:about settings. 0 stars for software that is not updated but still has a request for payment.
The separately loaded strings for additional browser options are (1) hard to find, it's not obvious this is needed and (2) is NOT up to date - it stops at FF 25. That doesn't help when trying to force Hotmail to accept that my FF is actually up to date because the latest version is 31. I don't know how out of date the rest of the entries are, but I'm sure none of the other browser choices are any better.
BTW, going into about:config and creating the entry general.useragent.override and setting it to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 works perfectly to get me into hotmail without getting those stupid overlook errors (MS doesn't recognize ESR release as valid release and assumes hotmail won't work with it - even though it does). So - this is a case where doing it by hand saves a lot of time and effort when compared to trying to use an out-of-date utility. (creating a specific list entry in this utility to make up for the fact that the .xml file with browser UA strings is also out of date did not result in success, as there is something wrong in this utility that bolluxes the entire browser)

Useful and functional add-on! But, one suggestion!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Really good extension.
A must have, if you want to increase anonymity.
Suggestion: Make last choice "permanent" between sessions (if desired).
Indispensable! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Indispensable! That's it.

useless default user agents, no way to get more Rated 1 out of 5 stars
useless without provide some defaults for user-agents to switch to. Including no mobile user-agents by default except for Iphone 3? are you serious? pass

Leider etwas alt, aber immer noch nützlich.
seriously out-of-date Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I'm running Firefox 25.0 on Windows XP SP3.
My purpose: to spoof my XP op system as Vista, because some websites may refuse to connect to XP after April 8, 2014. Some banks have already given notice that they're sunsetting XP after that date.
After installation of this add-on there was no icon or menu available to switch anything. I had to find it in the Customize box and drag it to a toolbar. I could find no instructions so had to google and try to figure it out on my own. Then I decided to venture trying to create a new useragent string, although there's no way to know for sure if I have the syntax right. It tested OK but wouldn't stick after restarting browser, so I had to put useragentswitcher.reset.onclose=false into about:config. That causes no apparent problems despite the warning, and I use java regularly. Also there is no general.useragent.override in my prefs.js file. And clicking on import useragent list does nothing, no action whatsoever.
So this add-on has insufficient, incorrect, and out-of-date details. That's not surprising because the build date is January 2011, more than 3 years ago. Please update, and if possible make it available for SeaMonkey as well as Firefox! I'm quitting Firefox soon, 25.0 will be my final version, no Australis junk for me.
Bottomline, it seems to work, but I wouldn't bet on it working tomorrow. So on second thought, I'll probably only use this with a portable browser, not my primary installed browser. That will make it a sort of backup when my regular browser fails. I keep portable copies of chrome, opera, etc just for that purpose.

Add the TO-DO features and it will be the best addon related to Firefox user-agent.

Well I've used this in... maybe 2 situations and it was OK. Functionalities are limited and I recommend an update! Developer?
If it would change the default, then it would be a lot more useful Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Has a lot of nice settings, but is missing what I consider the most important option which is to change the default. Without that, its fairly useless.
Per site feature Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I only use this on one or two sites...
As I'm sure is the case for EVERYBODY that uses it.
So it only makes sense that it should default to showing your standard Firefox string, unless you specifically change it for that site.
I shouldn't have to fiddle with menus every time I change a tab.
Great, But Missing One Thing, Maybe Two Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The add-on is great, don't get me wrong. I really love the extra user-agent list you can get and add in to it. It has almost every possible one out there. Why isn't it there by default? I have been using this for something like over two years now. It is time to see two critical features implemented in this product.
We need the ability to save a different default user agent. I end up using system default many time because this feature is missing. I will not accept a rebuttal to this, we want this and need this feature. We have spoken.
Also, why can we not specify on a per site basis? This would be another great feature. Some sites break with some user agents. Of course it depends on what you are using this for. But that's our prerogative.
Great and always working Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great extension that work outof the box on all FF versions (I'm on 26.0) . Also, very nice to see that the developer is working on an update and occasionally answers reviews..For a list of UA's check this one:
It covers pretty much every Crawler, Browser, Library out there...
The best of a lousy lot Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Compared to the other extensions in it's class it has a number of advantages:
*It actually does what it says it does.
*It has a large list of agents.
*It has an easy import function and a link to a (mostly) updated list of user agents. The list is flawed but nobody else has posted anything close to this.
*The UI flows well.
*It comes with an icon- and the icon isn't jumpy!
There is another bonus trick: Often times a casualty from the rabid-release carnage is extension developers put their minimum compatibility numbers too low. This especially hits users of browsers such as Palemoon because browsers like that don't have inflated version numbers. With a good UA switcher those users can come on and appear to have the latest Failfox and get the (100% compatible) extensions they want without the dumb version # hassle.
*EDIT* I went ahead and removed the earlier comment. Happy holidays!
I have not abandoned the extension, but I have found it hard to work on this extension recently with the other commitments in my life. However, I do have an update that is about 80% complete which has some improvements and bug fixes. I can't say when this will be released, but I'm hoping to get to it early in the new year.

Nice to have: Could you add a "favourite" option to save the user agent that I usually use?
