comment Can I switch the User-Agent header for only a single web site?
Assuming you don't want the user agent switched globally, nothing. I only used UserAgentSwitcher in my steps above because I needed to grab the iphone user agent as I didn't know what it was.

Here's what I did: 1. Use UserAgentSwitcher to spoof myself as an iphone. Visit neogaf (that I always want to load the mobile version of) and it automatically loaded the mobile version. 2. Made a bookmark to neogaf's mobile page. 3. Set UAcontrol to use iphone useragent on neogaf. 4. Turned off UserAgentSwitcher. When I launch neogaf from the regular bookmark it uses the regular website. When I launch neogaf from the mobile version bookmark, it uses the mobile version. Thus... UAS functionality localized to one site rather than globally. RESULT!

I think I may have gotten UAcontrol to work... I set neogaf to spoof as an iphone. Instead of doing what UserAgentSwitcher does, and automatically loading the mobile site when you visit a regular page/bookmark with UAS spoofing turned-on (and conversely auto-loading the regular page when you visit a mobile page with UAS spoofing turned-off); you have to load the mobile page/bookmark with UAcontrol turned on. This will keep that site using the mobile version whilst other sites (such as YT) will continue using the regular desktop version.

By using a Greasemonkey script ''youtube me again'' (here: userscripts.org/scripts/show/60843) I can access YT videos when they are posted as links elsewhere. If I am on a YT video page whilst spoofing myself as an iphone/android and attempt to play the video I get error messages similar to these: "Safari needs to install plugin" "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (vnd.youtube) isn't associated with any program." However if I then press back and scroll down to the bottom of the page 'youtube me again' pops-up and I can play YT videos from YT.com.

... Neither does RefControl (here: addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/refcontrol/?src=ss), which was mentioned in UAcontrol's user reviews. Don't really see the benefit of opening up an alternate browser only for the websites where I prefer to switch the user-agent to ipone/android to view mobile sites over, well, switching the user-agent back and forth, lol. I already had my hopes dashed trying to use U-A-S in two different firefox windows but that didn't work either.

I followed a related SU post and am currently trying out the FireFox addon UAcontrol (here: addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/uacontrol). But it doesn't seem to be having any effect at all.

comment Issue with Ivan Heckman's allSnap
Upon further inspection: In Windows 8 32-bit Enterprise N RTM, I can only get two Windows Explorer windows to snap together if I am resizing them, not when I am moving them. So, if 'hooking' is the technique that this software uses, I am now also asking how to turn 'hooking' on for Windows Explorer.

comment Issue with Ivan Heckman's allSnap
I have previously used allSnap on WinVista (32bit) and Win7 (both 32bit and 64bit for Win7 without fault). I have just tried changing the program to use Win7 compatibility, turned it off and on again, but still the problem persists. The windows just overlap each other as though allSnap isn't even running.
