Do you use the "useragent switcher" in firefox?
If yes, you need to disable/uninstall it before using the "general.useragent.override" string.

Kind regards

No,don't use useragent switcher.
I have created the general.useragent.overide string,after getting the useragent string from here:

http://whatsmyuseragent.com/

And edited it accordingly.
I also deleted the original string from general.useragent.extra.firefox.
Still no Debian icon.

@the_trooper: You didn't answer my question yet.

In case you didn't understand: I do not want the useragent string. I want the name of the setting parameter you wrote the useragent string in.

OK, I didn't notice it from all the posts.

It's just that I noticed that for Firefox 4, it has to be general.useragent.override to work. My string is "Mozilla/5.0 (X11, Arch Linux x86_64) Firefox/4.0".
