Opera mobile 10 desktop view

In 9.5 and 9.7 I had a UA setting that pointed to an HTC url.
I could change this or disable this and it would make the pages come up with the desktop version of the web.

On 10, I can't seem to find the same setting to disable and get be back to the desktop view again.

ANd I have made sure that in settings the mobile view is not checked.

Anyone know where this setting is (with in Opera:Config)?

THanks.

Re: Opera mobile 10 desktop view

we had a little Opera discussion the other day in a thread..

what seems to be the issue, just the mobile vs desktop thing?

some sites just goto the m.xxxxxx.com version no matter what in Opera 10.. Myspace take you to a page asking if you want mobile or desktop, Facebook goes to m.facebook, and i think youtube goes to m.youtube as well...

its nothing to do with the settings and mobile VS desktop.. it just does it...

those probably arent the sites your referring to but ERIC12341 pointed it out that Opera 10 was doing that still, even without mobile view checked.... so im sure theres quite a few sites that do that still..

is that the problem your having?

Re: Opera mobile 10 desktop view

just use IE 90% of all sites take you to the desktop page with desktop mode selected (unless ur on a wm build lower than 21052) opera however is the reverse and they've even banned me from their forums for mentioning it.

Re: Opera mobile 10 desktop view

there's a setting you can try. do opera:config in the address bar. go to user agent. paste in there something like Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0) and it will fool some sites. not all unfortunately. in other operas this had a numbered list but on mobile 10 gotta type it

Re: Opera mobile 10 desktop view

yea but just using IE avoids the trouble of finding and pasting a user-agent string edit that may or may not work IE on the other hand rarely redirects me when I have the desktop option selected I think I've only had it happen once or twice.

Re: Opera mobile 10 desktop view

so after tryin 10 and not like it, i found 9.7 opera. i still cant find anything to avoid sites from redirecting to mobile versions. i have not tried to edit the string of compatibility modes...cuz its seems retarded complicated to have to do it.

any other ways to avoid mobile versions? and does ie have flash compatibility??? needing a flash player was the entire reason to sqitch from ie to begin with.

Thanks

Re: Opera mobile 10 desktop view

i did a writeup on this a while ago and just answered this in another thread. opera 10 DOES allow you to change the user agent like in 9.5/9.7. you do it the exact same way, i just checked.

follow these steps to change it:

1) type opera:config in opera's address bar
2) scroll down to user prefs
3) scroll down to custom user agent
4) delete "(compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 8.12; MSIEMobile6.0)"
or you can change it to desktop user agent, but ive found deleting it is alot easier with the same results
5) scroll down to save
6) restart opera
7) enjoy!

i hope that helps u guys
