Support » Plugin: WP Mobile Detect » Detects “Pale Moon” browser as mobile.

    So, while checking how my site renders in several browsers, I noticed that this plug-in detects Pale Moon (https://www.palemoon.org/) as a mobile browser. After digging through their support forum it seems that it’s not uncommon for scripts that detect for mobile to make that mistake.

    Is it possible to fix this?

    Ok, so a not great solution but one that works is to open up “mobile-detect.php”, go to line 187 and remove “GOA”. The downside is, of course, GOA phones may not be detected as mobile anymore (I don’t have one to test with).

    So, ultimately, you’ve got to decide whether it’s more important for an obscure Linux browser to not be detected as mobile, or to be sure an obscure French phone will be detected as mobile.
