    I have checked and changed settings back and forth, rebooted, etc. It doesn't happen to all sites, but IS happening more frequently on a variety of sites I regularly browse. Even if I take the "m." out of the address, it still happens. Thanks.

    Perhaps I should have been more clear: I have checked and changed settings back and forth, INCLUDING the ^^^ above suggestion. Thanks for trying though.

    Have you tried "clear cache" and "clear cookies"? Some sites store whether you went to their mobile sites with cookies and will lead you back to the mobile site if you return.

    Some sights also base the rules for mobile VS standard viewing on the browser type...RIM has options on their Blackberry to spoof 'IE' or 'Firefox' android doesn't.
