More and more companies are blocking the use of the Firefox browser. The companies then advise using Google Grome and/or Microsoft Edge. Is there some solution for this because, I want to continue to use Firefox?? Some companies are, UWV, Ziggo, the App Ziggo Go, a credit Card company, etc. This is a short list of the companies that are blocking Firefox.

Can you add the keyword 'firefox' to the User Agent of Ipad FireFox?

Hello I'm working at Imperva which is a security company. One of our product is Web Application Firewall. In this product one of our feature is to identify the application that is used when sending request to a web service. This may help our customer to set FireFox request as legit. One of the attribute that helps us doing it is the request header User Agent. We have found that FireFox which is installed on Ipad generate the following User Agent without the keyword 'firefox' (while Desktop FireFox and IPhone firefox does) Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_4) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.1 Safari/605.1.15 (Note that this User Agent ) Because the User Agent is very similar to Macbook Safari application, we can't classify FireFox on Ipad.

Is there any reason why this is the implementation? Can you update the User Agent in the next version in order the security product will be classify it?

So I've been using firefox for a while now, and I really like it, but in the past few months it has suddenly decided that my browser is out of date (not the case, I'm running the latest update) and unsupported, even though it says firefox is supported. This happens on a lot of different sites. I tried resetting my useragent and clearing my cache and cookies, but nothing seems to have happened. I still get the bug. I submitted to webcompat too.

https://github.com/webcompat/web-bugs/issues/55085

Please help, its super irritating to deal with, and I don't want to have to switch browser.

To upload photos to Instagram I changed my user agent to replicate an iPhone. Now I can't change it back. I can't get through to your site on the effected computer with the changed browser. Thus, I can't download a new version of Firefox. I understand there may be a "revert to original" command somewhere, but I can't find it. HELP! What do I do? Thank you very much for your assistance,

My UserAgent string is wrong. It has the wrong OS and the wrong Firefox version. I ran into the article explaining how to reset it, but when I search for "useragent", I don't see any of the suggested preferences (see also screenshots).

It might be relevant that I had the UAControl extension installed, until it got automatically disabled due to the switch to WebExtensions. That might have had the "wrong" user agent selected when it was disabled. But I still can't find where it was set or how to reset it.

My browser is 65.0.2 (64-bit), up-to-date. When attempting to download/install a new add-on, I am provided no option for doing so. The only available button for download is "Only with Firefox, Get Firefox Now". This is the same for every add-on. I have tried using Firefox in Safe Mode with all add-ons off and it still did not work.
