Is it possible to have a custom user agent string for a FoxBox? The "prevent detection" preference isn't enough to satisfy some sites (I'm looking at you, QuickBooks Online).

    Not from the exposed settings window. I'm trying not to overload the interface with every possible option.

    However, you could add it to the internal prefs file (since I know you'd be willing to hack the binary). You'd add the pref to the preferences file inside the resources folder of the app bundle.
