When i go into bookmarks and use the google search engine I am getting google with a .ca/m extension. The page that opens is different than it used to be which ended in .com. it seems like I am getting the mobile browser edition of google. When i type in google with a .com extension it still goes to the .ca/m site.
How do I change this back to the way it was? What happened. I have a phone with 1.02 firmware and everything else works great including all the other search pages.
Thanks in advance,

Are you in Canada? Or using a Canadian wifi/proxy?
Maybe try google.com/m
Or you could probably go into Language Tools and choose English

there is an option on the page to view normally just click it and it will change your cookie to the normal pageI can't wait until the day after yesterday's tomorrow.

in the google moble home page there is a setting for classic view but when I tap it nothing changes still mibile view. is there any settings that could have changed. when i type in google it always goes to mobile no matter what extension I type. I've deleted the cookies not that that would help but just a try. I am using wifi. Any suggestions would be great.

Im getting the same thing.
Started last night.
Cookies are enabled on my iPhone and it didnt have a problem previously.
guess ill just use the google search box next to the URL in Safari.

how do we fix this?
i dont like it at all and its actually less useful... seems like it doesnt let you view as many results at a time
edit: and after needing to look up an image... cant. theres no link for images on the page anymore.
