Thread: Mozilla ID

    Mozilla ID

    Hey,

    Does anyone know how to change the Mozilla ID to IE Explorer, so you that can fool websites that require IE, just like in Opera or Konq?

    Re:Mozilla ID

    I know the sizzy way to do it: Install prefbar and you'll have a nifty dropdown box with UA string to select from. This is a great add-on to mozilla anyway.

    Other that that I only know how to make squid fake a UA string...

    Actually, I am not sure the exact process, but you can edit a preference or config file for Moz and there is an ID string setting somewhere.

    I installed prefbar, but now I get this when I try to run Mozilla:

    INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Expected a version > 5! Version = 4

    What the hell is this? ???

    Re:Mozilla ID

    What version of mozilla do you use? prefbar should work with versions >=1.0.0

    Re:Mozilla ID

    version 1.2a

    I found out this:
    prefbar inserted this line into my prefs.js file:

    Code:
    user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE6.0; Windows NT 5.1");
    It makes Mozilla crash every time.

    I changed it to:
    Code:
    user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE6.0; Windows NT 5.1");
    Now everything is working. Go figure ...
