This is new issue as this morning t was running fine then I refreshed home page and browser got into a loop of attempts to keep loading (desktop version of page) and then redirecting back to mobile version. Over and over. I clear cache and cookies and the Loop stops (temporarily) but the redirects to the mobile page seems to now be the default response to the www.washingtonpost.com site for this browser. Works fine in safari and chrome. So...i upgraded to ff14 (whihc I had been waitng on and same deal thing still occurs.
Your user agent may have changed.
The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
If you don't mind digging under the covers, you could try changing your useragent directly. See Websites say that Firefox is outdated or incompatible even though it's the latest version.
Do you have your cookie management set to "ask me every time"? A new cookie-related issue has emerged for some websites that causes inexplicable behavior. Please see these threads for examples and a workaround:
I tried changing user agent directly but no solution there. Moving on the default procedure but not excited about reinstalling extension and addons. oh well.
Does it work on IETab?
I assume you meant IE user agent. Tried it but still no go.
No, I meant IETab extension. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ie-
marcsances, please check on which platform the OP is before doing suggestions about using IE. On a Mac that doesn't apply and thus isn't possible.
Ok, ok, don't get angry, please... Maybe the source of the problem is not the user agent, maybe just it detects he/she has Mac OS and thinks he/she has an iOS device. Just tell us: how do you perform redirect to mobile version? Do you detect user agent, or you use another method?
