YouTube is mobile now? [Solved]

Unread post by Daikun » 2019-05-28, 22:21

For some reason, every time I visit YouTube on PM, it automatically directs me to the mobile site.

It seems to be an isolated problem for me, since I tried it on another desktop and YouTube was normal. :wtf:

Is there any way to revert YouTube back to the desktop site?

P.S. I tried running in safe mode. That didn't help.

I'm not seeing this happen with any of my installations of Pale Moon, so I would agree that it's limited to your one system.

Need more info:
What version of Pale Moon are you running?
What compatibility mode (Firefox/Gecko/Native) do you have it set for?
Have you modified any of the default youtube.com or Google-related UA overrides in about:config?

Perhaps comparing all of those (plus installed extensions) between the Pale Moon that works and the one that doesn't will help you identify the culprit.

Latest version. (28.5.0, 64-bit)

I'm not sure. :| How can I tell?
EDIT: Never mind. I just found it. It's set to Firefox.

No. It's set to the current default.

They're both identical.

Okay, after a bit of tinkering, I solved my problem. :mrgreen: Turns out the permissions were the culprit.

I go into the Permissions Manager, select m.youtube.com, and click "Forget About This Site." Now it's back to normal.
