User agent is a browser feature which determines how the browser identifies itself while requesting for information on the web. It also affects the behavior of web pages displayed on your web browser. For example, many websites have a lighter version specially designed for mobile platforms. However, this might not be desirable always. The good news is that this behavior can be fixed by changing your browser’s user agent.

- Launch SureFox and go to the admin settings using your password
