    Hello - is there a way to ensure that websites you visit on the Droid will stay in mobile mode throughout your visit to that site? For example, I go to m.gawker.com, which is formatted for mobile devices, but when I click on most of the stories, they lose the "m." prefix, thereby losing the mobile formatting, even though I know the "m." prefix does apply to its stories.

    I checked my settings and both Mobile View and Autofit Pages are checked. Any ideas why clicking around knocks you out of the mobile view? Thanks!

    I believe that is a problem with that website. Most sites detect what browser you are using, then redirects you to the mobile version of the site if you are using a mobile browser. It sounds like that site does that to a degree, But then mixes up some of its links.

    I am 99.99% sure this is not an issue with your phone nor the browser.
