Add user agent override for Carousell, to suppress its glitched mobile app download banner

Unread postby kbhasi » Fri, 07 Sep 2018, 10:47

Whenever I visit Carousell (an online classifieds website popular in its home country of Singapore, where I live) using PM, it displays a mobile app download banner at the top of the page, and also glitches the appearance of the global navigation, but clicking the "GET" button takes me to a "null" URL, and a 404 error. I can provide "before and after" screenshots, if anyone here is interested.

However, I have decided to add the following user agent override name and value to my "about:config", based on another user agent override enabled by default:

Code: Select all

general.useragent.override.carousell.com

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:99.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/99.9 (Pale Moon)

Edit: It's possibly to replace the Windows 10 string above "Windows NT 10.0; WOW64;" with an OS specific string, like "X11; Linux x86_64;" (for a Linux on 64-bit x86). Actually, if it's possible to let the OS string show through the user agent override, I'd like to see it also done for WhatsApp Web, as I usually get prompted to download their desktop client unless I change the override to use that Linux string instead of the Windows string that's there by default, as I primarily use Debian Linux.
