WhatsApp ceased to work with Basilisk :-(

Unfortunately Whatsapp web (https://web.whatsapp.com) doesn't work with Basilisk anymore (you get the message "WhatsApp works with Mozilla Firefox 30+. Update Firefox"). Is there a way to continue using WhatsApp Web with Basilisk?

Looks like user-agent sniffing that thinks you have Firefox 28.x.x.

So playing around with any compatmode settings will not work?! It's not so nice if WhatsApp Web doesn't work with Basilisk anymore. Sniff.

fipsy, open about:config

and add this line:

Code: Select all

general.useragent.override.whatsapp.com             Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:61.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/61.0
