CNBC sees k-meleon as mobile browser

When I go to CNBC's main site http://www.cnbc.com it forces k-meleon to http://m.cnbc.com (CNBC's mobile site) with less content.

How can I get it to not see k-meleon as a mobile browser?
I have about 10 user agents and none of them do it.

It lets IE 6.0 open www.cnbc.com.

thanks

I think you need Javascript turned on.

You mean You tried to spoof 10 different custom browser strings with K-Meleon 1.6betax or 1.5.4?

I had no trouble with: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0a2) Gecko/20110911 Firefox/8.0a2

Which i use currently to camouflage my 1.6.beta2.

BTW my K-Meleon 1.5.3 and 1.5.4 have no problem with the site without spoofing much.

Except - I am redirected away from the mobile site.

Are You using a portable USB internet stick so that Your IP may indicate that You
are roaming?

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.24pre) Gecko/20100228 K-Meleon/1.5.4

today it seems that it works unless you select the "default" user agent, close and re-open k-meleon. then it opens the mobile site. Wierd.

I use ver. 1.5.3 win 98se and DSL (non wireless).
