Using Firefox "Modify Headers" Add-on to change your browser's "User-Agent" attribute in HTTP header

Using Firefox "Modify Headers" Add-on to change your browser's "User-Agent" attribute in http header

To install the "modify Headers" add on, go to the following url:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/967/
Then click "continue to download" and follow the steps. At the end it will ask you to restart Firefox.

Once the add-on is active, go to Tools->Modify Headers.

In the new popped up window, select Add in the first select box. Next box will define the attribute name (User-Agent) and the following after that, will define the value ("SonyEricsson e800"). The last box defines your comment and, probably, is optional.

To make use of this attribute in the header of all http requests sent by your Firefox, click "Configuration" and "Always ON".

After this, all http requests will look like this:
Code:
GET / HTTP/1.0
Host: www.yahoo.com
User-Agent: SonyEricsson W800i
Accept: image/png,image/*;q=0.8,*/*;q=0.5
Accept-Language: en,ro-ro;q=0.8,ro;q=0.6,en-us;q=0.4,en-gb;q=0.2
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Referer: http://google.com/
Cookie: style_cookie=printonly; phpbb_a2srz_u=1; phpbb_a2srz_k=; phpbb_a2srz_sid=871166b94e13b6d9e45611bcede06826
Via: 1.1 ng-dpx01.intinfra.com:3128 (squid/2.6.STABLE21)
X-Forwarded-For: 10.226.55.227
Cache-Control: max-age=259200
Connection: keep-alive

(Above request goes through a proxy, of course).

I prefer the Header tool plugin https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/271768/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/271768/ is more affordable and quicker to edit and restore. It also support the js code modification so you can easy modify the header content or the value with javascript. as example you can encode in base 64 easily the content of a header :twisted:

In the new window pops up, select Add from the first selection box. Following box will set the name attribute (User-Agent) and after that will set the value ("SonyEricsson e800"). The last box that defines your comment and, probably, is optional.

The HTTP-EQUIV attribute can be used instead of the NAME attribute to indicate that the property is an HTTP header. Some servers send the HTTP header specified in the META element, and browsers often recognize the header, even when it is sent by the server.

Community exchange window prefwindow be a place of a standard dialog. This was so the community could benefit from the toolbar at the top of page As in prefwindow Delivers. Men were a problem in Mac How prefwindow window resizes to content EVEN when the den opens as a tab.

Add, modify and filter the HTTP request headers sent to web servers. This addon is particularly useful for Mobile web development, HTTP testing and privacy.
