    On My S2 I have installed this:-

    Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On the desktop version and on my previous phone, HTC Desire, pressing the "W" brings up a "Random" button.

    However on the S2 pressing the "W" does nothing.

    How can I get the "Random" function on my S2?

    Whatever he said.

    It works for me but I'm using dolphin browser with the useragent set as desktop. It could be because your browser is set to the default useragent(Android (ie they should really call it mobile view))

    Ok

    Found this:-

    "..In the browser type about:useragent into the address bar, hit enter, it will come up with a list of user agents - choose desktop to have the browser stop defaulting to mobile versions of websites."

    However even if I do this, uninstall Wikipedia, then reboot and reinstall Wikipedia still does not work.

    each time I type about:useragent the radio buton Custom is checked even though I checked Desktop before closing?

    May have to started using Dolphin?

    Before I change to Dolphin I wonder if anyone knows why this is not working on my stock browser?
