Basilisk and Firefox account

Post by zoli62 » 2017-12-07, 21:56

Does Basilisk work together with the Firefox account? That's why it would be necessary. https://bitbucket.org/pabuisson/in-my-pocket In that case, if I would like enter with my Firefox account, I see only neverending hourglass.

For the meantime, you may want to set a user agent override to make this work.
  1. Type in your address bar:

    Code: Select all

    about:config
  2. Right-click on the list and click New > String
  3. In the preference name, type:

    Code: Select all

    general.useragent.override.firefox.com
  4. In the next dialog, type:

    Code: Select all

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Goanna/4.0 Basilisk/20171112
  5. And press OK.
  6. After that, try refreshing the page that requires a log-in to Firefox Accounts.
This also allows Syncing with FF accounts to work.

Issue #188 is now resolved, the next publication of Basilisk should have working Firefox Accounts for Sync.

A guess ...
It looks like that string uses Gecko compatibility, with Firefox compatibility turned off.
You could probably get the equivalent for your OS by changing general.useragent.compatMode.firefox to false in about:config. Then open about:support and use the user agent displayed there. (If about:support was already open, refresh the page.)

On my W7 x86 machine, this produced: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Goanna/4.0 Basilisk/20171201
(which I haven't tested, because no FF account)

Adding a clarifying note to a sentence from earlier post (since some readers might misunderstand if this isn't spelled out.):
coffeebreak wrote:Then open about:support and use the user agent displayed there. (If about:support was already open, refresh the page.)

This means (given the purpose of this thread):
"Then open about:support and use the user agent displayed there [to create your site-specific override for firefox.com]. (If about:support was already open, refresh the page.)"

Basilisk.
You won't need to do it yourself, because this override has been coded in (see post above and issue #188).

I don't believe so. They use different sync mechanisms.
