I've been stuck with the desktop version in Firefox on my SGS2 since July, it is such a pain. It was discussed a little here, but not resolved (looking back I don't appear to have responded to all of Timan's posts though, perhaps I could have put more effort in on my end, I must have been busy or something :/).

I've just tried Google Chrome and the default browser, and they work perfectly.

On Firefox (which is what I normally like to use on android btw), I've just gone to settings > clear private data, left everything ticked, and clicked 'clear data'. But browsing to the forum still shows the desktop version. I tried loading a different website in a new tab, and closing all neowin tabs, repeating the clear private data routine, closing Firefox (including closing through the recent apps list), reloaded, and still, loading the forum gives me the desktop version. Whether I login or not makes no difference. Something's borked :(

Edit: and just to clarify two points, 1) the neowin home page is the mobile version, it's only the forum that is the desktop version, and 2) having given me the desktop version, clicking the 'view mobile version' link just takes me to the home page, and from that going back to the forum again, the forum is still in desktop mode.

I read that 2.3.3 allows non-root apps to take screenshots. Also certain phones allow combination of buttons to take the screenshot. I did not fully look yours up however. I've not gotten an app to work on mine yet and there doesn't appear to be any combo keys for my phone.

Can't find it. Tried in both the stock browser and google chrome (wasn't such which you meant)...

Other things I've just tried:

- I tried going to android settings menu > applications > firefox, I pressed 'force stop', and then 'clear data'. No difference.

- I repeated this, then uninstalled it, and searched the file system for any 'firefox' or 'mozilla' stuff that may have remained (there was none). I then rebooted, and reinstalled firefox from the app store. I made no settings changes and I installed no plugins, I just left everything as defaults including sync. No difference.

- Installed the beta version (alongside the standard version), again no setting changes or plugins. I've never installed the beta version on my phone before. No difference.

- Just for the hell of it, still in the beta version, I went to the home page and tried to change that to the desktop version and back again, just on the off chance that the cookies from that might help. It wouldn't give me the desktop version. (tried the link in the menu, and the one in the footer, it just reloaded the page to show the mobile version.).

@Timan, you mentioned not being able to view the mobile version on the desktop unless we spoof the user agent...

about:support (on android) gives me the following for the stable and beta versions respectively:

Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:16.0) Gecko/16.0 Firefox/16.0

Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0

I've just installed the 'phony' addon into firefox (android), and spoofed the user agent as 'android (phone)', which now successfully gives me the mobile version. I think therefore I can conclude that IPB is failing to identify the mobile version of firefox as being a mobile browser...

Yeah I meant the stock browser. Each phone company has their own setup. For Tmobile it's where I said it was. IF you have a different carrier then it's likely in a different location or non-existent. Do a google search for this about your phone.
