Most mobile sites are of a lower quality than their desktop counterparts. Less features and constant requests to download unnecessary apps are annoying and waste screen space. How do I force the Firefox app to only open desktop sites?

Because when I do the toggle bar it only works for one tab and when I open links to new tabs, it switches them back to the mobile version. Which for some sites that prevents me from being able to read or access things because the mobile version switches to a page that is just a prompt to download the app and clicking the desktop toggle doesn't bring me back to the page I wanted.

I saw there used to be an addon that would have been useful. It's dead now. Is there any useful replacement add on? Any convenient workarounds?

Hi

I am using the latest Nightly version of Firefox for Android where this has appeared as an option.

Once it has been tested and we are comfortable with how it us working, it will move to Beta and the Release version.

I hope that this helps.

Hello, I’ve checked through Firefox Nightly’s settings yet I do not see the option to force the desktop site permanently per new tab. Has that setting been dropped from testing in the six months since, or am I missing a step that I have overlooked?
