    Browser identification...


    Hi, all. In Fedora Core 6, it's easy to tell FireFox not to identify itself to servers, using the 'Do not send browser identification' checkbox in control center. Now I know this isn't strictly Linux, but this is the misc category... Is there any way to set this on my MacBook (also running FF)? I thought someone might know, since a lot of Linux users also have Macs, and they are kind of the same. Thanks in advance. Zeke

    Or

    in the location bar of firefox, type about:config
    In the filter field, type useragent and change the value to what you want or simply clear it.
    I also suggest to type referer and change the value to 0 so that it doesnt send the referer header and sites wont know from which site you came to them.
