    Google Chrome is redirecting one site (foxnews.com) to foxnews.mobi. This is the only site and it only happens on Chrome. No problem with IE or Mozzilla. Tried Google support but received no help or suggestions. Don't have the app on iPhone. How do I stop the redirect?

    Hi Phantom010,
    Thanks for the reply. I followed the instructions you provided and using the suggested chrome tools it changed the user agent.
    None of the Override agent options solved the problem. I'm sure that the issue is the user agent string but I don't know if I need to change or remove the culprit string in Chrome. Any suggestions for a novice?

    I don't have Chrome so I don't really know what else to suggest :(

    Have you tried removing the string? I'm sure you tried deleting the temp files from the browser already. Can you provide any details that lead to this problem?
