Google search becoming mobile mode again with NoScript enabled

Post by asaone7 » Wed Nov 20, 2019 5:24 pm

Hi,

This problem was there before around late July. With NoScript activated, the google search display is going to mobile mode again. Looks like the previous workaround no longer works (from here viewtopic.php?t=25573). Is there another fix for this?

They may have changed things, again.

Different UA may help.

But none are "right", in that something Google will be messed up regardless of what you choose.
"Trident" did work well - with Google Search, but then it hampered other parts of Google.

I believe at mozillazine, of late, they were recommending a current FF Quantum UA, but I think even that was giving mobile when JavaScript was disabled, so... ?


Even (my ancient version of Chrome, 38.0) if I manually disable JavaScript, I end up at mobile.

Is there something we could add to about:config, like in that other thread, to bring it back?
