User agent settings are not applied on redirects via URL shorteners.

Description

1. Set Privacy Browser to use WebView Default as the user agent.
2. Create a domain setting for github.com that uses `PrivacyBrowser/1.0` as the user agent.

When loading GitHub via normal means the desktop version is presented based on detection of the user agent. However, when loading GitHub via a URL shortener, like tinyurl.com/y99jqpfo, the domain settings are applied, but it appears they take effect after the user agent has already been sent to the server. So the mobile version is loaded.

This will have to wait for the release of Privacy WebView because Android's WebView does not expose when a URL is being redirected.

This might have been fixed by https://redmine.stoutner.com/issues/584, but it is difficult to tell because GitHub no longer presents a different interface for different user agents.
