Question The system logo under your nick


I've been wondering for a while now what does determine that logo! I have some machines with custom Debian install and browsing with Iceweaser the logo just say Linux, with a tablet running Android it says MacOS, default Debian install it says Debian, default Ubuntu install says Ubuntu, so what in the Linux system determines that logo under the nick? Also in this thread some folks talk about the forum see the system as Windows when running Firefox under wine.

It's the useragent string in the browser you can alter it.
What browser are you using?

Well you can change your useragent string in about:config if you want to change it

Oh i was just there reading that link you post, also i found this links for those who want to know more details about the user agent
What is that user agent string used for
How to change user agent string

Looks like Iceweasel doesn't have the option to pass the general.useragent.vendor which tell what system is running or is it possible to add strings there?

thank you for the heads up !

Regards

Yes i know that , for those who want to edit the config just right click over it or double click over the line you want to change be careful.

Now lets see how it works in practice this post is from Debian machine running squeeze 6.0.3 before change the config so the logo would be just Linux.

Thank you very much Eddy
