I use Motorola MC55 devices with built in barcode readers running Windows Mobile for our inventory control system. We have several browser applications running. Basically the device is connected by WLAN to the database, you scan a products barcode and it shows for example current stock and other information about the products.

I had to replace one of the devices - however the new is running Windows Mobile 6.5 and not 6.1. Problem is on Windows Mobile 6.5 the IE only runs in fullscreen mode and everytime the page loads the addressbar is displayed, covering the upper part of the website and then it slowly fades out. Anybody have an idea how I can either turn off fullscreen mode or disable the display of the address bar in Windows Mobile 6.5? In Windows Mobile 6.1 you can switch between fullscreen and normal view, I could not find a way in version 6.5 however.

Or does anyboy know an alternative browser that can access intranet? I tried Opera Mini but it loads all websites via Proxy, so I can't display any intranet pages.
