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!
