problem with bookmarks toolbar Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This addon obstructs proper display of bookmarks toolbar. At least, with "User Agent Switcher" enabled only half the bookmarks on my toolbar are displayed. When disabled, my toolbar returns to normal. Will keep disabled until really needed or perhaps switch to other addon for functionality needed. (firefox 3.6.17)

Firefox 4 Options Location Rated 4 out of 5 stars

To all those having problems finding the options in FF4: To see the User Agent Switcher options again, you just have to turn on the Menu Bar, which is turned off by default in Firefox 4.

Firefox Button In Top Left --> Options --> Menu Bar

Hi,

Doesn't work for me (no context menu).
My setup is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1
I wish you could fix this bug , very useful addon that can replace the old IE Tab 2

This addon should tell you what your current user agent string is.. secondly provide an option to set the default agent string so on startup its already modified to your chosen settings.. third option is set agent string for certain sites..so far you need separate extension (UAcontrol) for all those last two making this extension kinda pointless. It doesn't even come with an upto date agent string library or a link to easily fetch the maintained list.

It does work with Firefox 4, but it's not immediately obvious how to access it. Press "alt" and then you'll see the main Firefox menu bar, and then you can find the "Default User Agent" menu item there.

user agent switcher on firefox 4.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Used it on my firefox 3.6; How do I use it on firefox 4.0? Does it even work on firefox 4.0?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Useful when you need it. It would be nice if it had some default ones like it used to.

I use this instead: "User Agent RG". Seems to do what this add-on does but with more options.

Awesome. Allows a more generic User Agent to minimize tracking ability. Go to http://panopticlick.eff.org/index.php? to see how unique your browser is using various User Agent settings. The more unique your browser info is (higher "1 in xxx" number) = the more trackable, easier to identify a user's activity. And make the prefs.js tweak to retain user agent settings!

For all of you need to don't have reset the user agent at firefox start up follow this:
Search prefs.js on your system and opening with worpad.
Add this to the last line:
user_pref("useragentswitcher.reset.onclose", false);
With that string you don't have reset on user agent after restarting.
And if after you doing that firefox is not start ( to me and my friends dosn't happens.
anyway you can repair that deleting that line:
general.useragent.override

not saving settings. therefore it's useless

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon is a great work! It will be absolute perfect if it saves the settings users made. And also with the option for domain-based settings.

I add to my review:
As of today, a strange combination of this addon, plus some themes ( like Stratini ) on Firefox 4.0rc2 totally freeze firefox and crash!
Very Strange

User agents aren't saved when the Firefox profile is saved on a networked hard disk. If you're in that situation, this addon is worthless. Move along until it gets fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good. Does exactly what it says.

MUCH BETTER when you install more agent options, available here:

Don't waste your time, use the better option... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This thing doesn't provide any functionality that can't be achieved by entering about:config in the address bar and filtering by general.useragent.extra.firefox There is a much better addon called HeaderControl. HeaderControl provides domain based user agent switching. (something that has been requested of User Agent Switcher time and time again) This means you can set the addon to send specific user agents to specific websites. Finally!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good add-on to check to see if your website is working correctly with Google, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It does exactly what it claims, quite well in fact. It's great for tricking those pesky "Unsupported Browser" pages. The only problem it has is that it changes back to "Default User Agent" each time you start Firefox up.
