    Ok so I'm trying to go to nbc.com and watch a video, but it keeps redirecting me to m.nbc.com, which is their mobile site. The mobile site doesn't have full episodes like the full site does. Is there any way to get it to think I'm not using a mobile browser? I tried the about:debug trick and setting the UAString to desktop, but that doesn't seem to work.

    Thanks.
