great extension but
please add domain exception list, some sites look terrible on big screen and some other force you to open site with app like soundcloud and fb messenger
Does the job very well.
It would be a nice addition to reset the Switcher when the browser closes.
works perfect, great Addon!
Great addon, but not possible to see/edit custom domain rules, without visiting the site.
Curious why this addon is 8MB large. My second largest addon (uBlock origin), is only 2MB.
Idea for future addon: Same concept for an addon to modify referrers.
The add-on is so large because it (currently) ships with a pre-processed BrowsCap database of User-Agents. There are methods/libraries for parsing User-Agent-strings, but non of these provide the required information at the required level of quality for this add-on, atm. If I ever get to switch to any of these completely for “User-Agent Switcher” the size would likely drop to 100–300kB or so. So, no short-terms fixes for unfortunaltely, sorry.

The UI isn't very advanced, but from a functional perspective they're almost at feature-pairity. Please open an issue or send me a mail if you have any (specific!) ideas on how to improve it.
Edit: Regarding the per-domain overrides: I know this is missing currently, but that's simply because nobody has asked for it yet :-D
Please open an issue in our issue tracker, including an outline of how you would want this to look like, and we'll see if this something that will be implemented.
Finally, I can switch entirely to using Firefox on Android! Google Maps and Google Voice give me all the menu options now, not the nerfed versions they serve to us Firefox Android users! It even does site-specific domains! Erm, I only wish I could specify for it to work only on certain Google sites, Maps and Voice (www.google.com/maps and www.google.com/voice), but not Google Search. Unfortunately, Google redirects to these addresses and then the extension doesn't catch these sites.
Thank you for your feedback!
You can already match on subdomains or on the entirty of the Google domain (ie: `*.google.com`). Adding matching for subpaths will not be added since the UI for this would be quite complex and the paths on many domains are meaningless anyways.
I'm not sure what you mean with „the extension stops working“, but if there are specific issues you see with this extension that you would like see fixed please open an issue (with detailed problem description, steps to reproduce, …) at https://gitlab.com/ntninja/user-agent-switcher/issues/new .
It is recommended to support automatic setting of different useragents for different websites.
With site-specific options and the ability to add custom user agents, this has to be the best user agent switcher out there now
it doesn't work after i updated Firefox
Love the override feature!
There are hundreds of these add-ons, they have one goal, same names, similar functionality, and I even found an outdated rip off of this one.
Why choose this over the others? If you want to easily maintain your own list and you don't need an outdated list of 1000s of deprecated browsers, or a pretty interface with big flashy icons. If you want to spoof an agent and have it stick on browser restarts or spoof the agent for a specified website and have it stick or spoof random agents at an interval than this add-on is for you. I have set this up for an old lady so it's not only made for "hackers".
Developer: The interface text size and spacing could at the users discretion be decreased so we can fit more items into view, I'm using the default list and it takes up a lot of room. The icon is ugly! It's identifiable in that I look for the ugly icon. It looks like a box with a small dot in the center, consider increasing the empashis of the 3 "heads?" or making a new icon with out the noise in the background. minimalism is the current trend for a good reason.
Thanks for your feedback! I don't think changing font size is a good idea, but if you feel like I'm wrong, please open an issue with as many details as possible for this at https://gitlab.com/ntninja/user-agent-switcher/issues/new .
I definitely embrace the idea of adding a more clear-cut icon (although I don't agree that the current one is „ugly“) and already updated the icon of my other extension, Smart Refer, because of this. If you could provide a visual sketch of what you have in mind that would help a lot in making this happen through.
Dear Alexander Schlarb, I hope you receive this message. This agent switcher is by far the best I've tested at present. It gets the information correct on the sites I've tested it on. Other add-ons will show a different agent yet reveal under system information my real system information. Your add on doesn't. There's just one thing I would really appreciate, if possible, to set custom screen resolution, is that possible? I hope this review reaches you. Thanks.
Thank you for your feedback! Unfortunately this kind of feature request is totally ill-suited for the review section as it needs a lot more discussion and justification to be added to this extension. Please open an issue (with details and your particular use-case) at https://gitlab.com/ntninja/user-agent-switcher/issues/new so that we can discuss this properly.
This extension is fantastic! I didn't check all of the settings that are included with the extension but what i needed it for it did superb!
I use Firefox for Android on my 18" Samsung Android Tablet and I get tired of having to check the little box to get the desktop version of websites. Like Google, for instance, I prefer Google's desktop version of their site over the mobile version, especially when the search results load.
I tried to find a way to make the desktop site the default of Firefox for Android and there is an extension that does exactly that but it is incompatible with my device so i did a little thinking outside the box. I remembered there used to be a way to make a web browser, as well as the device it is installed on, appear to a web site to be different than the actual device and browser being used. If a web site detects I am using Linux as opposed to Android which is what I am really using, then it would show the desktop version of it's site since Linux is only installed on a desktop pc while Android (although a variant of Linux) is only installed on mobile devices.
It worked! If need be I can also switch back to Android or just switch it off too! The Windows selection didn't work for me on my Android Tablet but there's other options to choose from. Thank you so much for this extension!
Just restart it ,you will find the new world！
Firefox 59.1 64-bit and this addon does NOT work
navigator.userAgent always returns Firefox, no matter what I choose
It works, unlike others
I needed it for a particular website that only wanted to support Chrome. I downloaded this, installed it, and picked the only Chrome user-agent option (Chrome 59). The site then assumed I was on Chrome, but complained it was out-of-date so I couldn't use it. I found no way to use a newer user-agent, so this add-in does me no good.
