Chrome on OSX displaying the mobile site - how to stop?

Hi all -

Chrome on one of my OSX devices has started to render FA as if its a mobile device. I have tried incognito mode as well as wiping cookies belonging to flightaware.com and logging in / out with the same results. Safari and Firefox on the same machine render the desktop version. I am not able to reproduce this on any other OSX machine at home.

Below is the output of /fix :

Anyone have ideas?

How wide is your browser window? Can you make it wider?

The site is responsive, so the layout changes with your browser window viewport.

Its the full width of a 15" Macbook pro…

Try using the ⌘ + 0 (that’s zero) shortcut to ensure your browser is not zoomed in at all.
