Hi,
I was able to do this with my old computer, but don't seem to be able to do it with this one. I can use Firefox, with the Useragent extension installed, but can't find anything similar for SeaMonkey. What can I do?
Thanks,
... john

Hi Dan,
Yes, this was very helpful, insofar as it twigged my memory to how this problem was resolved once before, by isaacschemm, about 4 years ago. The post is here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3036259 and the solution is:
"Go to about:config and add a new string.
Name: general.useragent.override.www.instagram.com
Value: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:52.0) Gecko/52.0 Firefox/52.0"
Thanks again for your (and Isaacschemm's) help.
.... john

Hi Dan,
Go to about:config and add a new string.
Name: general.useragent.override.www.instagram.com
Value: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:52.0) Gecko/52.0 Firefox/52.0
Should this work for Firefox (52.9.0)?

I can't say but you can certainly try it.

Hi Dan,
No, it didn't work; but it's Ok, it worked on SeaMonkey, so I don't need Firefox to do it.
Thanks,
...... john
