Enhanced Mobile View on desktop every now and then

Every now and then EhMac.ca on my iMac loads up the Enhanced Mobile View instead of the normal view. I have not been able to discern a pattern to this behaviour, but it's quite irritating.

Cheers

If you are clearing your cookies or if 90 days pass the skin will revert.

Thanks for the clarification. I am not clearing my cookies. Can you please stop the skin reverting to the mobile version, considering that I am on an iMac and NOT a mobile device?

If I am on a mobile device I can understand the default skin being the mobile skin, but on a desktop device the default skin should be the desktop skin and not the mobile skin, 90 days or not.

Cheers

My apologies for the delay in responding - I was travelling and did not have internet access. I just got back.

In response to your query, no, I am not using anything like a rocket stick or a 3G connection. I am on a plain vanilla iMac with plain vanilla OS X El Capitan and Safari; and I am connected to the internet by my Airport Extreme.

Cheers

Hi,

You can set your default skin to stay on the full view mode. To do this, please go to the User CP, on the left hand side, under Settings and Options. At the bottom of that page, there is a setting that you can change to what you want your default skin to be.

Cheers,
Sheena

My skin has always been EhMac New Style - Fixed Width. That has not changed at all and is the same even now. However, occasionally EhMac will launch with the enhanced mobile interface instead. That is what my problem is and that is what I need help with.

Thanks and cheers

Are you sure that is the full view destop mode though? Can your please try that and see if it reverts?

Thanks,

Marie, I don't know what that means. I have attached a screenshot of what I currently have.

Hello,

So I googled around the internet about this:

Safari 4 on iMac Defaults to Mobile Version of Google.co.uk | MacRumors Forums
Quote:
If you delete all Cookies and cache data (Preferences->Pricacy-> "Remove All Website Data") you will probably find the problem resolved. Thankfully Safari keeps passwords in another place so if you have saved passwords (though you shouldn't save passwords for CHASE !) you won't lose them in the process;
It seems like it's mainly a Safari browser thing with a tough cookie that won't disappear.
