    Pray tell, how do you get to that page? Can you post a link that works on your 830? Are you on DP, Denim update?

    My IE is set to "mobile version", rest is default settings. Lumia 830 RM-985_1000, Denim *not* updated, OS version: 8.10.14157.200, firmware: 02040.00005.14373.00001.

    Every cbc.ca headline proposed by Cortana ends up on the white "Error - Go back" page. Just tried another cbc.ca headline and it did it again with this link : http://www.cbc.ca/m/news/world/ukrai...dead-1.2980938

    Going directly to cbc.ca redirects me to CBC.ca/m/touch
    And that's exactly where I start as well. But clicking the News tab doesn't give me that error at all. It goes straight to the page pictured below where I can start looking at articles. The entire URL I get is: http://www.cbc.ca/m/touch/news.html

    I would like to first re-iterate that all pictures provided are from my Lumia 820, not an 830. No special dev preview version of 8.1, no Windows Insider. I've never touched my IE settings, so they should be whatever the factory settings are. My phone info/about page notes that I'm on Lumia Cyan 8.10.12393.890, fw: 3051.50009.1425.2001

    Side-Note: As of yesterday, I also added a Lumia 635 to my collection just for the sake of playing with Windows 10... cbc.ca's news tab (as well as fatface and cnn) works just fine on that too.

    I also have the same problem with cbc.ca. Cortana is always providing me with headlines but I can't read any of the articles. It's been going on for as long as I can remember. Rogers Lumia 920 with Cyan and Dev Preview. I've also tested it on a TELUS Lumia 625 and Lumia 635 running Cyan - same results.

    I think I figured out how to get cbc.ca to work: On the cbc.ca/m/touch, tap "Switch Site" and select "Desktop". After that, all the sections will work, but still remain in mobile format oddly enough... The downside is cbc.ca links from Cortana will show in desktop format - not an ideal solution but better than the current error page...

    CNN.com isn't working... I'll upload a video but a majority of links are not functional.

    That sounds like a lot of work.

    I will note that I finally found my way to the error screen. Within the IT firm I work for, I was deployed to a site where our team had nothing but a metered connection.

    Trying to load cbc.ca's news tab on that metered connection gave me the error retry thing... but back on my home connection (Charter US, St Louis Area) and on my regular mobile network (AT&T US) it loads just fine.

    Seeming more and more like this is a network issue and not WP/IEMobile.

    Is there a browser on WP that allows the browser string to be changed?

    One of the problems with webpages, is they aren't a level playing field. Sites work different based upon what device/browser their believe is using them.

    I'm sure there was a browser that allowed the identification string to be changed, and if you pretended to be an iPhone, web pages rendered much better.
