Morph Browser User Agent



  • I've noticed that the user agent switch from chromium to chrome has resulted in an apparent security problem with access to ebay uk.

    I have an M10 tablet running 16.04 stable. Whatismybrowser.com sees this device as chromium 65 on ubuntu 16. It plays sweetly with ebay uk.

    I also have a Nexus 4 running 16.04 rc. Whatismybrowser.com reports this as chrome 64 on android (kitkat) with the warning that my browser is out of date. When attempting to sign in to ebay uk, this provokes the warning that the connection is untrusted and the server's certificate does not match the url.

    Has anyone else noticed this issue?



  • @dtarrant It says Chromium 65 on Android (KitKat) - Nexus 5



  • Did you try signing in to ebay? You don't actually need to sign in. When I selected the sign in option, I got the untrusted connection warning immediately, so naturally I didn't enter my user name or password.



  • @dtarrant Well, I don't use ebay. Not available in my country. But, I can easily sign into Aliexpress.

  • Tonight, I discovered that the problem with my tablet with ebay was because for some reason it was displaying the mobile site. Previously the M10 had always displayed the classic site which worked fine on the tablet.
    So I looked for a way to switch it back. I found that if I scrolled right to the bottom of the mobile site page, there was tiny clickable classic site emblem.
    Clicking that control immediately switched the display back to classic mode and everything worked smoothly without any insecure connection messages.
    In any case, on the tablet, classic mode is superior as more information is displayed.
    I hope this information will be helpful for other M10 tablet users.
