Thank you, that does work, and the header continues to be sent with each sucessive request: >>> from zope.testbrowser.browser import Browser >>> import mechanize >>> mech_browser = mechanize.Browser() >>> mech_browser.addheaders = [("User-agent", "Zope Test Browser"),] >>> b = Browser(mech_browser=mech_browser) >>> b.open('http://localhost/') Understood that Browser.mech_browser is an undocumented implementation detail. However, perhaps would it be appropriate to document that while "The browser can send arbitrary headers", it won't send this particular header without this workaround. Hopefully if and when the implementation-detail mechanize.Browser attribute is removed, that documentation and a test will preserve the capability to send a custom User-agent header.
