Bug Description

Using 3.36.1 in focal, depending of the local/labels the pages can lead to have the list of panels on the left hidding, that's quite a confusing experience (layout change, not obvious how to change back to another panel and when going back the mainview is empty)

Video showing the issue on focal in french:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/uploads/205957358c22144ba761eaca649f99a7/gcc.webm

That's reported on https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/-/issues/942 which is about bluetooth but other panels have the same bug, e.g https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/-/issues/763. The selection bug is reported as https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/-/issues/764

I'm suggesting we disable the adaptive layout for focal to provide a better experience since I believe there isn't a real usecase for not having the list on the left on a desktop.

Upstream did rollback that feature in the past with that commit
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/-/commit/5cc5a85b

We could probably do something similar if needed
