m.(mobile) verus full website

2011-11-06, 21:01 PM

I keep getting the m.(mobile) site when I want the full website.

Did the about:debug and checking on desktop, first couple of times to the site worked fine, now every time I go back it is the m. page. Went back did the debug fix again, still had desktop checked and still the going to m. page.

The dolphin hd browser lets you set the user agent to desktop. It works well for me.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that once we get ICS, you will be able to set the browser to load the desktop versions of websites.

@tspl11,

The reason that the "about:debug" method must be repeated is because when you exit or close the stock browser under HC 3.1 or earlier, the debug is turned back off and then web sites see your UAString as a mobile device again. Dolphin HD (and many other third party browsers) support setting the UAString dynamically in the settings, so this is not an issue.  have found that the updated browser under HC 3.2 (on my 4G Xoom) seems to keep the UAString setting after exit.

Thanks, I have stop using the browser, using Dolphin, seems to keep the desktop setting, so far.

Opera worked for a little while, but also started going back to the .m site.

@tspl11,

If you are using Dolphin HD, you might want to try Dolphin Pad instead. The latter came out after Dolphin HD with direct support for tablet formatting and better web site compatibility. As you noted, Opera pulls up full sites for some locations and defaults to the mobile version for others.
