    I've owned a few phones that enabled you to do this in the browser's settings but haven't seen a way with the Razr.

    I know you can scroll down at the bottom of the site & enable desktop mode but I ran into a problem on a certain site that when you click it takes you to the page but switches back to Mobile mode, really annoying.

    Anyone found a way?

    Open your browser and in the top bar type about:debug and enter. When the screen refreshes hit menu button - more - settings. Scroll to bottom and you will see UAString, click on pull down arrow and choose desktop.

    Will it permanently stay in desktop mode, or only for that session??

    It should stay permanently until you change it back.

    Worked like a charm! Thats exactly what I wanted. Just curious though, could you elaborate on what these additional functions that are unchecked do if I check them on?

    Such as:
    Single Column Rendering
    Normal Rendering
    Enable Tracing
    Enable Light Touch

    I have no idea what the other ones are for. I learned about the UAString on another forum, I haven't messed with any other settings.

    I knew about this from when I had the OG about a year and a half ago but I had to type that in every session, so I downloaded Dolphin Browser HD and that was the only one I've used since. Guess I'll have to revisit the stock browser now.

    It keeps reverting back, just like it did on my OG. I think I will stick with Dolphin HD.
