    All of a sudden my auto google search is displayed in the mobile format. I have to manually click classic search each time to have it displayed full screen? Any idea? TIA

    Same problem. I suspect it's an issue with the rollout of Google Now for all mobile browser applications. Lets see how long until it's fixed.

    Same problem. Any of you think the Hulu patch might fix it in the meantime?

    If it's like the mobile image search issue... never
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Hello everyone, I am new here and new to touchpad. So far I can't quite believe what a great device this is, tho that may have more to do with my previous tablet was an advent vega and this just feels like quite an upgrade.

    So after having the initial few hours of familiarizing myself with webOS it seems the one thing I am getting stuck trying to figure out is with Google search from the just type bar...every search I perform always comes back with only 3 google results and they all seem to open in a mobile formats (just text)

    Now I have noticed if click on classic view at the bottom of the results page then all is fine and the full google result page is displayed and results open in full web formats

    So was thinking if anyone here could help me keep this "Classic View" on permanently as it just always reverts back to mobile view and a lonely 3 search results

    I have searched the issue and that has brought me here and I'm glad I did. Its great to find a forum with so much HP TP goodiness

    thanx to all

    Edit: and have just noticed the thread underneath which seem like a similar issue, could it be a webOS issue perhaps? as it seems most people may be running android on their TP

    This is a brand new issue and not a "webOS issue" but a compatibility issue when google makes changes. It just happens with no new users to webOS, no real reason for google to care. They may fix it, may not.... it *may be something that can be patched on the webOS side, but in general it is a change in the way webOS interacts with google, but the change itself was on the google side.

    Maybe there's a way to tack on a parameter to the search string to force desktop mode? A quick check shows adding "&nomo=1" to the end of your search would force desktop mode. Someone can patch that into the existing Just Type search providers.

    Sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask, but when you say 'patch" is this just downloading the fix to the TP or do I need to install the software to use patches? I ask because I have been reading here tonight a lot about patches and fixes but not sure how to go about installing one.

    I'm sure I will get there but first night with TP and its getting to that point where my brain is frying from reading

    A patch is a file that contains the modifications made to a system file to change its behaviour in some way. To apply the patch, you need to have software to do so, as the stock webOS is not designed to be "patched" by third parties. To apply a patch you need a patch file and either WOSQI or Internalz Pro (or possible Preware, I haven't checked), or if the patch is available in the WebOS Internals patches feed, WOSQI or Preware to download and install the patch.

    The above post was merely a suggestion that someone create a patch (probably me if I have time), but to my knowledge no such patch has been released.

    My friend and I are having the same issue on our HP TouchPads. Started around midnight Eastern time last night. Please update this thread if there's a fix, a JustType patch, etc. Also, please help me make some noise on the Google Forums. Maybe we'll get someone's attention over there.

    It's nice to know I'm the only one having this problem.

    I don't see the point of having a "mobile" version of the site regardless of who's fault it is now that its stuck that way. The whole point of larger resolution screens and larger physical screens on mobile phones (not even counting tablets, you should get desktop view on tablets period. thats the whole point of a tablet) ws to get a full desktop experience on your phone. Heck that's even touted as a feature..mobile internet is like for legacy phones..Not for tablets.
