Description of the issue:
A lot of sites serve mobile version, while Desktop mode is enabled globally for all sites ( Settings -> Site settings -> Desktop Mode). For sites which load mobile version Desktop mode checkbox is active (three vertical dots in lower right corner -> desktop mode) meaning Desktop veersion should be served, but that`s not happening.
Hiding Brave to background and reopening works as one-time remedy for the page.
Also switching Desktop mode via page checkbox (three vertical dots in lower right corner -> desktop mode) off and on makes correct version to be served (desktop version).
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Enable serve Desktop globally for all sites ( Settings -> Site settings -> Desktop Mode)
- Create new empty tab
- Type one of the affected websites URL (4pda.ru for example)
- Mobile version is served initially
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Before temporal remedy (minimizing\maximizing Brave or reloading Desktop mode)
Site should be opened in desktop mode right away without need for additonal actions.
After temporal remedy (minimizing\maximizing Brave or reloading Desktop mode)
Reproduces how often:
Issue reproduced every time for affected websites
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Google Play latest version
Testes on two ARM phones:
Android 8.0.0 Lg v30+
Android 9 Oneplus 7 Pro
Latest Brave 1.2.0 Chromium 76.0.3809.111 (but the bug has beed around for a while)
I have made simular ticket github com/brave/browser-android-tabs/issues/1998 but I am not sure if you check postings happening on github made by regular users, so I also submitted it here.
github com /brave/browser-android-tabs/issues/740
This bug is related, but different in a sense that issue 740 depicts case when sites dont open Desktop version at all and my ticket raises situation when Brave is capable of opening Desktop verson and does so but only after additional external user input.
