Low res images

I have just found this information, which worked for me in Firefox. The following is a direct quote from Apple's Discussion Boards:

"O2 are misleading you. It's a mobile broadband issue where they filter the downloads to replace full quality images with lower quality images (and therefore smaller sized files). The software they provide doesn't allow you to alter this setting. At best, you can use Firefox to tweak some header information sent while you browse to fool the O2 servers: If you are using Mozilla Firefox, then its doable.

You just need to download the "Modify Headers" addon from the Addons site, and once installed - add the following name/value pairs

"Pragma" "no-cache"
"Cache-Control" "no-cache"

And lo and behold, no more pressing Shift+R to improve images!"

Nope, reloading the software and changing the account password to 'bypass' makes no difference at all. Is anyone else using a Mac having this problem?


Bypass should work on pay monthly contracts. Make sure you clear browser cache and restart the modem. I first heard of this back in May '08 just after I'd returned the modem but when i got one again in the autumn I connected with bypass and it has worked ever since.

Pay as You Go

Hi all,

Could anyone confirm if there is any solution for Pay as You Go users?

I have tried two solutions ("no-cache" the "Pragma" and "Cache-Control", and the NoScript Firefox plugin.) They don't make any difference somehow.

There is a stock quote site I rely on which seems to get messed up by the inserted JS script. Smiley Sad

Any comments would be much appreciated.

I can't believe that o2 are injecting javascript into all webpages, and serving up los-res images. This is ridiculous!

I think I'll be switching to a different mobile broadband provider.
