    I have searched and can't find an answer to this.

    How do you stop the browser on the droid from displaying WAP websites.

    Example:

    NASCAR.COM - News, Schedule, Drivers, Tracks, Fantasy & Video from NASCAR
    MyFOX Detroit | FOX 2 News | WJBK

    These websites do not have "view full site" link.

    The reason, with the 2.2 flash plugin I would like to view the flash vids on these site. The Fox site just launched the web version and I can't get to the vids now. They also stream the news live via flash. Before they switched to WAP I actually watched the news on my droid.

    In the address bar, type:

    about:debug

    then go to that "address". Nothing will appear to happen, but once you do that, UASTRING shows up at the bottom in settings. Change to desktop.

    know your pain. Love nfl.com and was tired of wap.nfl.com. Yeah you would get the most out of your experience if you get dolphin browser hd and set the user agent to desktop. And if you have 2.2 with adobe flash........LOOKOUT!!! cuz you gonna get the entire site with video content to watch.:icon_ banana:

    Mobile sites aren't always WAP, FYI.
