Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Make sure your IE in WP 8.1 Developers preview is set to “desktop version” in settings. Open a blank tab in IE and type in "".

In WP 8.1 developers preview, the site opens as if I wanted “mobile version” (even though I’m set to “desktop version”), if I use the Facebook menu item “Desktop Site,” it will render in desktop mode. However, it will only stay in desktop mode until I navigate to another Facebook page or the page does a full refresh - then I’m back in “mobile version.”

Expected Results:

What I want and expect is that (as it has always been): if my IE settings are “desktop version” then every website will render as desktop IE.

Actual Results:
