    I don't like using the Face book app. Don't get all the data.
    Whenever I use the browser for facebook it tries to go to the mobile page and I get a no connection error.
    On my driod phone there is a way to make sure the browser shows the real web page and not the mobile one.
    Any fix for that?

    it's been covered before, but this is a summary

    Open the browser
    In the url type about:debug
    Press go, but don't expect any response
    Now tap the menu thingie on the. Upper left corner of the browser window - four horizontal lines.
    In that menu you will see a menu item called settings
    In settings there will be a new option called debug.
    In there is an option for UAString (user agent string)
    It allows several choices. Try desktop.

    It's not a perfect fix, because it's all or nothing, not website by website.
    And the setting sometimes reverts.

    ive tried the "about:degug" solution and its very hit and miss for facebook
    the best solution ive found and so far has worked 100% for me is use the "dolphin hd browser " from the market

    To get Facebook to display correctly I found you also need to check 'normal rendering' as well.

    And some sites give you a cookie, and then give you the mobile view even if the browser is set for desktop. I found I sometimes had to delete all cookies if the desktop setting had reverted and I visited a cookie giiving site before noticing.

    Resetting the browser a couple times a day and delering cookies was just too much bother for me. I also now use Dolphin HD and am quite happy with it.
