Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.


Description of the issue:
The Desktop Site feature is extremely important if you use a tablet since mobile sites look massive and lack functionality. Brave has long been my browser of choice simply for being the best at displaying sites in desktop form.

I recently updated Brave for the first time in months to solve a separate issue and the Desktop Site feature no longer works, it just shows the mobile version again.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to any site and check Desktop Site in the main menu, or set it as default in the Site Settings option area.

Expected result: The regular desktop version of the site.

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.59.120

Mobile Device details Samsung Tab S7+, Android 12

Additional Information:

Thank you in advance, this is a great community.

I just found a hint here:

I changed the Minimum Width setting in dev options from 856 to 1000 and now I am seeing desktop versions of sites again. It also made everything in the entire UI smaller, but I can deal with that. I’m still wondering why this happened… I have never messed with Minimum Width before. Insight would be appreciated.

800dpi is working for me on a 2160 panel
