Is there a way to make Firefox to present itself to the http servers as a NON Mobile device?

more options

On my Galaxy Tab I want to visit for example the website www.corriere.it. If I make it from the default browser ofr from Dolphin browser I get the full web site like if I were visiting it from the desktop. If I surf the website from Firefox mibole the website recognize the browser as running on a mobile device and so switches the site mode to mobile asking to pay to view full contents. This is weird becausse I'm using the TAB with a wirelss connection to my home router. I wonder if there is a way to avoid Firefox Mobile to present itself as a mobile browser.

You can use this add-on to change the "user agent" HTTP header in Firefox Mobile to match various desktop or mobile browsers: https://addons.mozilla.org/mobile/addon/phony/
