Site Rejects Chromium & Firefox?

#1 Post by NevilsStation » Sat Oct 13, 2018 6:54 pm

The medishare health cooperative site is refusing to communicate with either Chromium or Firefox.

They say to use Chrome, but besides hating the thought of anything-google, I don't even see an
option to load Chrome.

This is being tried on an older install of MX-16.

Thanks

Try changing the Useragent. Have your browser "identify" as Chrome.

like this:
Firefox -> about:config
add new: general.useragent.override
value:

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/69.0.3497.100 Safari/537.36
Check: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=what+is+my+us ... &ia=answer
or/and you can set side specific overrides
like this example for duckduckgo.com:
add new: general.useragent.override.duckduckgo.com
value:

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/69.0.3497.100 Safari/537.36


EDIT: added side-specific overrides

An extension which might do the trick:

User-Agent Switcher

Those solutions work for Firefox. I dunno about Chromium.

Hmme, Chromium: will present itself as "Chrome" user-agent,

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/69.0.3497.92 Safari/537.36
not sure whether OP's original issue, will be solved with user-agent change anyway.

In Chrome, I use User-Agent Switcher extension.

I presume it probably works with Chromium as well.
But I suspect your problem isn't Chrome, but rather the user agent presents itself as Linux instead of Windows.

Without the actual URL that is unobtainable, being provided it's difficult to check out.

If it's this one ( https://mychristiancare.org/medi-share/) I can report it works fine in Waterfox natively.

I'm updating that pc to the latest MX-17 right now - so I can't get to the specific page.

It's some form or something that's misbehaving ...

I'll get back here with specifics as soon as can.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to remember where to put a symlink for Firefox/Mozilla to the folder that contains the Profile with her Address Book, etc ...

Thanks!
