Yahoo gets redirected to mobile version when using Opera in Arch LinuxEvery time I try to access yahoo.com from the Opera installtation in arch linux it opens mobile version of yahoo.com.
is anyone else facing this problem?
Version:12.00 Build:1467 Platform:Linux System:x86_64, 3.4.4-2-ARCH Browser identification:Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en) Presto/2.10.289 Version/12.00

Yahoo fixed it for Windows but not for *nix. Your options are to either mask as Firefox or IE or use this link which is at the bottom of the mobile page: http://www.yahoo.com/?m=1

In other words ... since the Android version of Opera Mobile can identify itself as Opera for Linux (and possibly other versions of Opera Mobile can as well), Yahoo has decided that all Opera clients identifying as using Linux must actually be mobile clients. Stupid, they could just check the architecture (very few phones would use x86 architecture) - but someone who has set Opera Mobile to identify as a desktop version probably doesn't want to see the mobile page anyway. So they are chasing away the very people they are trying to cater to.
thanks for the insight ... that was really good to know

one of the reasons why I love Opera ... it's when things break that it peaks more curiosity and interest
The solution for this Issue is only going to the extreme bottom of the "Mobile" version homepage, then must always be there the looking selection, for Mobile or normal Web selection, once you "click" the normal selection you will then always get into the normal Yahoo homepage.
