I noticed that when testing my mobile interface, my AJAX requests were failing.

It turned out that force_mobile_format was forcing those requests to be interpreted as :mobile, and that meant my action, which looked like below, couldn't work properly

  format.any(:html, :mobile)
  format.js {
    dataset = @datasets.find { |d| dataset_cache_key(d) == params[:key] }
    raise unless dataset
    render :partial => "datasets/dataset_output", :locals => {:dataset => dataset}

I guess the intention of force_mobile_format is to work identically to set_mobile_format, except that it doesn't care whether the UA is a mobile device or not. So, my patch represents that :)

Let me know if you agree :)

Set request.format to :mobile or :tablet, but don't assume it's :html otherwise
