So I have noticed that every time I browse on Firefox on my Android phone, and it is connected to 4G, the sites I use keep letting me know that they use cookies. It does not work to accept or close that window, because if I refresh the site, the site lets me know again. This does not happen while the phone is connected to Wi-Fi, while I visit same sites. Using Wi-Fi makes Firefox remember cookie settings on each site I visit.

YouTube mobile redirects to Desktop Site

This began yesterday (Feb 9, 2020), when I refreshed a YouTube video I was watching, and suddently it was in desktop view. Since then, all my bookmarked YouTube links redirect to the desktop site, & any address I input with “m.youtube.com” redirects to “https://www.youtube.com/?app=desktop”. Clicking and unclicking “Request desktop site” did nothing, clearing the cache/cookies/history or checking for an update of Firefox yielded no results. It's very frustrating, because the desktop view on mobile does not allow me to adjust the video settings (eg captions, playback speed) or see my actual list of subscribed-to channels on the subscriptions page, not to mention how small everything looks and the fact that I have to zoom in to press most basic buttons.

All my Google searches yielded (apart from how to request the desktop view, which is the opposite of my problem) is that YouTube is discontinuing its “classic view,” but I don't see how that translates to Firefox redirecting every “m.youtube.com...” URL to “...?app=desktop”.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated!

Gifs/gifv/mp4 from imgur (possibly other sites) will play for little bit and then stop.

Have tried with Firefox for Android and Firefox Preview. Both browsers show the same behavior and will stop paying at random spots. On preview I see an error saying the video is corrupt. I do not experience the problem using any chromium based browsers and things play fine. 

An additional note is that things play fine on my PC with Firefox. If I request the mobile site, the gifs will play to the end and then the player shows the broken icon in the center of the media player
