With the Google browser open click on the menu button and select more. Its under settings. I don't know about Firefox
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...
