Default Asking every time about mobile

Okay, so it's cool and all that there's a mobile version of the site, but if gets really annoying when it asks you if you EVERY time you load a page if you want to switch to mobile. Some of us with mobile devices would just rather view the full version.

Thanks!

Mine started doing the same last night. Every single page loads with a pop up prompt to try the mobile version of the page.

I made the mistake of saying yes and now I don't know how to switch back. It's ok, but I prefer the regular site...or tapatalk support.

IB owns the company that the mobile site is run on, so I doubt you'll see taptalk get installed


try going back to: miataturbo.net and not: m.miataturbo.net

i THINK you are blocking cookies. go into your preferences/settings and allow cookies.
then when you say, "no" or whatever...it'll remember that you said no.

iIt's not that the mobile site is bad, I just prefer the desktop view It would just be nice to stay on desktop view without a popup every time I load a page...

uhhh, we had a mobile site 2 years ago. it only went back down a few months ago because the third party software Rick was using stopped supporting the service.

Now, IB reinstalled on.
