Thanks for all the hints. My problem is since the incident and with only this forum. Something has definitely changed. I will update my FreeBSD and FF to a recent bleeding edge version which will take some time due to vacation.
@wimdows , if you (or someone else facing the same problem) with a recent FF you could send a mail to @joao.azevedo or @dos that they look into the issue. I can’t do it because the FF on my FreeBSD laptop is outdated.
And the forum works fine on my company MacBook with FF 116.0. and also with 102.13.0esr on the L5.
Does anybody know how to change the user agent string in Angelfish?
I use Angelfish because it is the only browser that allows me to do my banking on the L5. None of the other browsers I have tried works for this. I presume this is because of the user string Angelfish deploys. But I don’t know which one that is, nor how to change it.
FWIW, in respect of this forum, my browser was working before and is working after and whatismybrowser.com reports (what I already knew to be the case) that my UserAgent string is intentionally dodgy due to Firefox privacy settings (resist fingerprinting?).
Said web site reports
Your web browser looks like: Firefox on Linux
but it’s announcing that it is: Firefox 116 on Windows 10
This conflict might be causing other websites to not detect your web browser properly.
My understanding is that Google announced to the world that UserAgent is being phased out. So any web site that cares about the UserAgent could have a problem.
It tells me mine is “Firefox 102 on Linux” (but it should be “-ESR”) and that it’s “out of date,” which is incorrect. For GNOME Web, it says it’s “Chrome 64” and also “out of date.”
By the way, I have no trouble accessing the forums on either of those browsers.
Unfortunately, doing this helps Google to strengthen their gatekeeping of the internet.
EDIT: @Captain_Morgan, I see now that I mentally glossed over the word “firefox” in your comment and focused on “Windows 11,” which uses Edge (Chrome) as the default browser, hence my comment about Google.
But still… I prefer to fly the GNU/Linux flag in my browsers.
(And Google still sucks, big time.)
