my lists get error 404 on m.imdb.com

Using Chrome on an Android phone, logged in, went to my user page, and whichever list I click on gets Error 404.

But if I go to "See More" lists, those links work.

I'm using Chrome 73, Android 8.0.0

I get the same result on Windows 10, Chrome 73.

The page with the errors (note the m.imdb etc.)
https://m.imdb.com/user/ur2875687/?ref_=m_nv_usr_ur_t

It constructs the list URL incorrectly:
https://m.imdb.com/user/ur2875687/list/ls023109473/?ref_=m_ur
should not have the ur# in it. Instead it should be:
https://m.imdb.com/list/ls023109473/?ref_=m_ur

(Yes, I know there's an app. But that wanted me to stay connected to data charges even though I just wanted the list to sit there for my visual reference. Hooray for View Full Site, where I can sort and refine; not so on the mobile version. Annoying that I can't just delete the "m." from the url; I have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find the link. Not even Chrome's option to view "desktop site" helps; it just displays the mobile version, but smaller.)

Thanks, ACT_1, but public/private is irrelevant. I'm reporting a definite bug about the URL constructed on the mobile site. (I'm logged in to my account.)

BTW, replace m. with www. on the phone, and imdb changes it back. Only with the extra parameter mode=desktop does an imdb page stay in the www. realm on Chrome on my phone.

bderoes, Champion,

Not being a mobile person - I do not understand why there has to be
an  "m"  And a  "'www"   so that all of the pages
on the 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 sites  on the WWW have to be copied and altered to M
- as WE  can see this has had many problems for  IMDb staff to fix.
Why not just keep the "www" ? ? 
Getting off topic now...

ACT_1, it's the narrowness of a phone; only room for 1 column to be visible. 

When I look at the desktop version on a phone, I zoom in to the column desired.
