    I'd like to be able to view the mobile counterpart of certain websites instead of the regular webpage while browsing with Firefox on a regular computer. Is there any way to do this?

    For instance, let's say I want facebook.com to redirect to m.facebook.com when I click a link or go to the website (or how ever I happen to get to that domain). But at the same time, I don't want BBC to forward to its mobile site. I'm aware of user agent switching, but I'm not sure how that could be implemented to only forward certain sites, and isn't actually all that helpful for sites that don't force the redirect.

    I most often use XP and Firefox for times when I would need this to work, but a cross-platform solution (OSX & Ubuntu, Opera & Chrome) would be nice too.

    I've googled this a bit, but any potential info was buried by redirect how-to's for webmasters.

    Any suggestions appreciated!
