Distro icon associated with user avatar in posts


?: in forum posts, the icon under the 'authors' avatar labeled distro, in my case says (upon hover) 'linux'...

How do I get the 'SuSE' (openSusE) icon instead of generic linux, tux head ?

thank you in advance,
Landis.

This one worked.
I did have mine set to Debian but I use the nightly version of Firefox and I got fed up of changing the user agent every few days and am not sure how it affects Mozilla's testing using a different user agent when trying things like WebGL betas and the like.

Yep. here is the user string I have:
Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; linuxsuse; 12.3-1.7) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/27.0
FYI... in Nightly 27, adding the general.useragent.X lines does nothing.
I installed an old Add-on, User Agent Switcher. Even with this Addon installed, you can not 'fill in' the vendor fields. You have to change the main agent line at the top as the one I used above.

save:
Code:
general.useragent.override;Mozilla/5.0 (X11; linuxsuse; 12.3-1.7) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/27.0
general.useragent.enable_overrides;true
New useragent based on mozilla useragent specs:
Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Suse; Linux i686; 12.3-1.7) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/27.0
screen shot - about:config, useragent section

tested with user agent string.com (screen shot of their report)

the only thing is, i haven't found a way to Force mozilla Firefox to use My OS definition by default and Not it's interpretation of Linux i686 with out editing the useragent string or using User Agent Switcher.... bummer.
this is important, because, if you edit the UA string, then when Nightly is updated to a new major version, ie, 27.0a1 to 28.x this will be over written by the manually edited string containing, in this case '27'

Any ideas welcome.
Landis.

That's what I was alluding to earlier: I used to change my user agent string but that means it doesn't change when I grab a new version of Nightly and I want the version in there in case it's used for reporting purposes.
