We have a number of developer options under Settings->Device Information->More Information->Developer. To support web compatibility testing, I'd like to request a new option to change the browser UA. I'm happy for the this to be a drop down with preset values for:
1. Firefox for Android
2. Android stock browser
3. Safari on iPhone

Even better would be to have this option in the browser settings. The appearance of the option can be gated upon the selection of a setting in the developer settings screen mentioned above.

Looks align with the goal of optimize web content experience,

We can just define our default UA with settings value, the rest could be overwriten by addon.
