I would like to override the useragent for a specific site.

I have the preference general.useragent.site_specific_overrides set to true and I have general.useragent.override.[website].com set to my desired user agent string. However this setting has no effect.

However, I am able to get a global override by changing the preference general.useragent.override

Also no luck with clearing the global preference and leaving only the site specific preference.

Is there something I am missing? These steps work on desktop versions of firefox.

This question is about Firefox on a mobile platform, so instructions for a desktop version do not apply.
