When viewing articles at the San Jose Mercury News on my Q10, only the Top Stories "Headlines" and ad at bottom of screen can be viewed. I cannot scroll down to the article linked to the headline. I'm running the latest 10.2 via Sprint.
My daughter's iPhone5 has no problem viewing the articles, unlike the Q10. Is this a Q10 browser problem, or unique to Blackberry 10?
Top Headlines at other news sites work OK on my Q10, e.g.
So is the problem due to the browser, or to the mobile version for the Mercury News? Or, how to inform the Mercury News to fix their web site for mobile. Other web pages related to mercurynews.com (but different web site name) have the same problem displaying the article linked to the headline.

Discovered an interim solution for The San Jose Mercury News (and Contra Costa Times, The Oakland Tribune).
In order to display the article below the Headline, i must first select the Headline news, then press "R" to enter "Reader" mode (or select dot-dot-dot options at lower right, Reader. The Reader mode is nice in that the text is reformatted, with A and A selection for smaller and larger font.
Other news site Top Stories do not require entering Reader mode. But use of Reader mode is beneficial for ALL new sites, as it also suppresses the banner ads!!!
