(Whiteboard: [serversniff][country-all][notcontactready])

Ford.com is using server side user agent detection to determine if a user is browsing using a desktop or mobile client. Unfortunately the site is not properly detecting the user agent string for Firefox OS. This is causing Firefox OS browsers to be redirected to the desktop version of the website rather than mobile.

:: Steps To Reproduce

1. Open Firefox OS browser
2. Navigate to http://www.ford.com

:: Expected Result

Redirect to mobile version of the site like Firefox for Android: http://m.ford.com/

:: Actual Result

Receive the desktop version of the site.

:: Additional Information

Firefox for Android:
http -h GET http://www.ford.com User-Agent:'Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:29.0) Gecko/29.0 Firefox/29.0'
HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
Location: http://m.ford.com/

Firefox OS:
http -h GET http://www.ford.com User-Agent:'Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:29.0) Gecko/29.0 Firefox/29.0'
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
