I really dislike the mobile version of the site, there used to be a view full site option at the bottom, is there any way to get the full site again on other devices?

I still see the View Full Site link at the bottom of the mobile site. Some mobile browsers also have a "request desktop view" setting.

However, the full site view doesn't fully work for me as the menus shown (top and bottom) are still the mobile menus.

Same here.

If you don't see the option at the bottom of the page, you could modify the url to add
mode=desktop
preceded either by ? if it's the first modifier, or preceded by & if the ? is already present.

Hi Charlie,

I can confirm that the “View Full Site” option is still available at the bottom of the mobile website, as shown here:



Can you please confirm your device and browser information, and possibly provide a screenshot of the page you’re seeing so we can offer further help?

Thanks in advance.

After using mobile app on a tablet my desktop site is now in that format. There is no view full site link at bottom. I have resigned in, restarted system, and tried mode=desktop. Using both Firefox and Edge this still happens. Nothing returns it to the original desktop version that I prefer.

Are you speaking of the IMDb home page, or all IMDb pages?
