Hello:

I am having trouble with youtube freezing in Windows 8.1/IE 11. I have found that if I untick the "User-Agent: Manage listed Strings - Set Var" rule, it stops freezing. How can I tell Proxomitron not to modify the user string on youtube?

Thanks!

I can't be sure. Have neither Windows 8.1 or IE 11. Try adding

Code:
[^.]+.youtube.com/ $SET(0=i_ua:0.)
[^.]+.youtube.com: $SET(0=i_ua:0.)
[^.]+.googlevideo.com/ $SET(0=i_ua:0.)
[^.]+.googlevideo.com: $SET(0=i_ua:0.)

to $LST(Exceptions-U).

We will need to accommodate Windows 8.1/IE 11. What is the browser's true user-agent? What is the Proxomitron sending?
Hi Joe...that worked.

Default is sending "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko"
Proxomitron is sending "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US)"

I've found a method to block youtube ads....will post.
