(Excuse my poor english)
Is it possible to modify user-agent of RSSowl's browser in configuration file
My society allow only IE8 & FF 3.6 user-agent....
You mean the user agent that is sent when rssowl downloads a feed or when it
accesses a news with the browser? The latter is not possible as RSSOwl is not
having much control over the browser.
Thanks for your answer !
I mean the user agent when it accesses a news with the browser.
I don't understand, you not have the controle of the RssOwl browser's code ?
RSSOwl embeds the OS native browser and does not control how the browser
itself communicates with a website.
Okay, i understand now !
I'll try to change this parameter if I can
Thanks again for your answer.
I have found a solution for change the browser user-agent, but now i try to
change the user agent that is sent when rssowl downloads a feed. Could you
help me ?
To change user-agent of the browser :
Add a REG_DWORD nammed "RSSOwl.exe" in
Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION" and take it "8000" for
Now the browser user the uagent of IE8 on my XP !
I'm not really sure but you either have to configure apache commons http (a
library RSSOwl uses) or you have to change some thing in RSSOwl's source code
m(); should be the right point to start – you may e.g. set it up after
initializing the Proxy)
The second one can be done by adding
client.getParams().setParameter("http.useragent", "My Browser");
after line 441 and then recompile RSSOwl.
