On my phone I get in the bottom a link to the meta page of the website

On my desktop (Ubuntu with Firefox) I do not get this link.

This makes it more difficult to navigate. Do I miss something, or is this a bug?

(Edit: As Glorfindel explains in his answer it is not a bug but intentional. However, it might still be something that needs change. This nonuniform look between phone/desktop sites is confusing)

  • @RockApe That's interesting. I am voting to close my own question with your link and it doesn't close it. Oct 25, 2021 at 7:58
  • I see now. I voted to close it as duplicate. And a bit later I got the message like 'somebody (which was me) voted to close your question, does this answer your question' on which I can answer yes/no. Oct 25, 2021 at 8:02

On the Desktop site, the link has a different name, Feedback:

This issue is already discussed here: Why does the "feedback" link go to Meta?

  • Thanks, that explains it and solves my problem with navigating. But I am not sure I should accept the answer. It is not a bug, but it is still a site feature that might be updated for others with the same problem that do not pass along this question and its answer. Oct 25, 2021 at 7:42
