    you can use imacros for firefox with proxy tool addon, and use mobile user agent :)

    regards.

    Hey, thanks for the suggestion, but I already tried that and unfortunately there's no way to fake the screen resolution...it's a little suspicious seeing a mobile referrer with a 1200x800 screen res, lol :p

    From my understanding, it's the resolution of the desktop that is sent through user agent, so resizing the browser window won't do much at all, but if you know more about this and has a solution, I'm all ears! :)

    I think screen resolution is grabbed through JavaScript.

    Anyway, look up Selenium web browser automation. This might be what you're after. (Also search Google for selenium android and you'll find some Android stuff for Selenium -- the Android driver.)

    I haven't tried this, but looked it up when researching different browser automation options.

    Sorry to be cryptic; I can't post links yet.
