action=mobileview does not apply Main page transformation when requesting page that redirects to Main page

Description

What happens when you search for "main page"

If you search for "main page" (all lower case) and press go, you get served the header from the main page on desktop, a strange little green box, and nothing else (see attachment).

I'd guess this is probably due to [[Main page]] redirecting to [[Main Page]] and the app not realising that it's the main page and treating it accordingly.

Searching for main page in lower case should serve the normal, app-friendly main page to the user.

I guess the code that checks if current page is main page is not resolving redirects first before checking.

Moved to MobileFrontend.
