Web viewer always displays mobile site

Post

I am trying to get Filemaker Go display Mapquest's normal site.  If I create a Web viewer object and put in the mapquest site (www.mapquest.com), it always takes me to the mobile site and I want to go to the normal site.  I know it's not mapquest that is doing it, because I can go into Safari on my iPad and type www.mapquest.com and it takes me to the regular site.  I tried using Set web viewer, and I get the same result.  Filemaker Go is prefixing my URL will "m", changing wwww.mapquest.com to m.mapquest.com.  I need ideas on what to try to get around Filemaker Go insisting on forcing me to a mobile site.

I found out that Filemaker was doing this by using Open URL and putting in http://www.mapquest.com, then selecting Open in Safari, and Safari shows m.mapquest.com on the URL line.
