How to get classic google search on Opera 12--google detecting it as mobile

Last year when google started messing with their interface, it detected Opera 12 as a mobile device and started showing that crappy new version.
So I went into opera:config, expanded the "user prefs" option and added this to the "custom user agent" field:
Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 6.1; U; en) Presto/2.2.15 Version/10.10
It worked like a charm and google was back to displaying like it does on a desktop, nice classic easy to use interface.
Now this year they're at it again, and Opera 12 is once again displaying it as the mobile version. I tried changing the number at "spoof useragent ID" to 2 for firefox, but it's still not displaying the version that firefox gets.
Please, please I'm hoping somebody has another suggestion! The google mobile version is unusable.

You could set it to
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/78.0.3904.108 Safari/537.36to see if that helps. It might break other sites though if they thing Opera is too modern when they give Opera code for Chrome.
