Recently my bank made some changes to web based banking facility. It is now IE only site for netbanking. They have coded site such way it only works with IE and do not work with Firefox browser.
So I need to change the ‘user agent’ field in the Mozilla web browser to make it “look” and “act” like Internet Explorer (IE).
Luckily Google pointed out to a user agent switcher that is written as an extension to Mozilla products.
From the extension home page:
It adds a menu and a toolbar button to switch the user agent of the browser. It works with following mozilla products:
=> Firefox All version
=> Mozilla Browser All version
How do I use User Agent Switcher?
a) All you have to do is download this extension
b) Install extension
c) Click on Tools > User agent switcher
d) Select Internet Explorer (Win XP) and save the changes
Now you can browse most websites w/o a problem 🙂
