Bug: Mobile view loading instead of desktop

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.

Description of the issue:

Since the latest Android update (apparently 4/4), mobile views of sites keep loading, despite me having it set to always load desktop view. I can fix it by turning desktop view off then back on…kind of tedious. This happens both with most-visited sites from my homepage, and with new tabs.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Load sites that have different mobile views (e. g., Yahoo!, Reddit) with desktop view enabled.
  2. Be taken to mobile view instead.
  3. Turn desktop view off then on again,

Expected result:

Return to the desired desktop view, which should have loaded in the first place.
