In about:config, go to


• There, tap on the setting, then long-tap to copy the parameter name and value, and back these up in a text editor to some text file (for future reference).

• I use a UA string similar to this:

Mozilla/5.0 (Android 4.4; Mobile; rv:38.0) Gecko/38.0 Firefox/38.0 IceCat/38.7.1

This is essentially the default Firefox UA string for version 38.0, with IceCat/38.7.1 appended to it.

In Android versions below 4.4, Firefox for mobile uses 'Android 4.4' as the general OS identifier; from Android 4.4 and up, Firefox uses the actual Android version number. More here:

I know IceCat blocks browser based fingerprinting but I think IceCatMobile should identify itself as a mobile browser even if other identifying information are suppressed. gitlab.com was showing its desktop version making it difficult to use.

38.6.0 from fdroid.
