"Other languages" links to desktop version instead of mobile
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT

Description

If you select an "other language" in mobile version, it links to the desktop version of Wikipedia, and not to mobile version.

E.g. in https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albaic%C3%ADn you get to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albaic%C3%ADn instead of https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albaic%C3%ADn - see screenshots attached.

The behavior can be reproduced under various browsers.

The language selector in Mobile frontend is not UniversalLanguageSelector.

It can work on real mobile devices and mobile simulation mode on desktop, but not pure desktop.
