I just used Google Maps, and as usual, I used the help icon to try and switch back to the Classic version.
Unfortunately, it brought me to a (new?) "Lite Mode" instead.
Now, I am wondering how I can at least leave that "Lite Mode" again and switch back to the full-fledged new Google Maps.
Things that I've tried:
- There is a lightning icon in the bottom right corner. When I click it, a popup says (in my native language): "You are using Lite Mode. Back to the full version of Google Maps.", where the last part of the text is a link. Unfortunately, clicking it does not cause any reaction.
- There is a link titled "Lite Mode" in the small info bar at the very bottom right, next to the source info on the map data. Clicking it brings to a help page that provides a button to return to the full Google Maps. Clicking it brings me back to Lite Mode.
- Restarting my browser and opening Google Maps anew still opens Lite Mode for me.
- An answer on this site suggests:
Click this link to switch to full 3D mode: http://www.google.com/maps/preview/?force=webgl
Clicking that link brings me to Lite Mode.
How do I leave Google Maps Lite and return to the full version of Google Maps?
I am using Firefox 37.
EDIT: Meanwhile, I am using Firefox 39. The problem persists.
