I thought I was supposed to leave the string off of licdn, linkedin, and yahoo.

I can't find any difference in the string you show and the one I show with yimg!?! What should be different?

Thank you.

It was one of tests for you - disable Firefox advertising, remove value strings for overrides and observe how websites will work. If they don't then put "fake" UA string for override.

Do you see it now?
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0

"WOW64" is shown in UA for 32-bit SeaMonkey run in 64-bit OS (Windows 10)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WoW64
Look at bottom of your posts and you'll see similar information with WOW64.

"Win64; x64" is shown when using 64-bit SeaMonkey under 64-bit Windows.

Got it! I looked and looked and didn't catch the difference.

My override settings are not in conformance with your good instructions.

Thank you once again.

Now podcasts that worked before do not now.
Can't find a spoof.

I'm afraid this is a case of bad webdesign - they make it work with Chrome and don't care about others. User Agent spoofing will not help here.

I can't test it more because it demands from me to log-in and I don't want to create account there. Sorry.
