When I run a Google PageSpeed insights test I get problem reports for various long URLs with query strings for /load.php?debug=.

These problem reports appear for the loading of any webpage whatsoever.

How could I remove these query strings?

    By not using the site in debug mode?

  • I didn't even know it is in it... Never had a case when a CMS starts in debug mode... I think this should be an answer like "Unlike may CMSs, MediaWiki starts at debug mode". I'll gladly accept (and thumb up for the sharpness).

  • Assuming that it is, because I never setted it on debug mode - not that I recall.

  • I went through LocalSettings.php and didn't find a debug variable, I also find nothing in special pages.

  • It's not in debug mode by default. It can be forced to be by setting $wgResourceLoaderDebug to true or adding debug=1 to the URL.
