However, the author of the extension has asked that you now take the file down.

In a previous life I did a bit of XUL Firefox add-on development so I thought I'd take a quick peek at the Revert Site add-on: Revert Site by steeev+

It doesn't look like much more than an user agent spoofer for facebook.com.

I concur. As of v1.2.2, for Windows, it appears to set the User Agent to:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/48.0.2661.102 Safari/537.36

This is set in background.js starting at line 102: // Switch User Agent ... the Windows NT 10.0 bit is hard-coded. I'm guessing you could probably substitute your favourite OS. ;)

There is also this small CSS tweak:

div.fbPageBanner {display:none}

This hides the "To help personalise content, tailor and measure ads and provide a safer experience, we use cookies. By clicking on or navigating the site, you agree to allow us to collect information on and off Facebook through cookies.
