The cnni.com site intends to send mobile browsers a "mobile" version, and desktop browsers a "desktop" version. Unfortunately it's not configured to detect Firefox OS devices as smartphones.

The HTTP analysis below (selected headers quoted) shows how the sniffing works:

Response for 'Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0'


HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/html;charset=UTF-8

Response for 'Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A5376e Safari/8536.25'

Trying to send email to my previous contact. Not switching yet to sitewait because I don't know yet if it will be working.
And I didn't get an answer. I need to find a better contact.
Contacted someone from CNN today about it.

Can't speak about FxOS but they just rolled out a new responsive design site over New Years and it works in Firefox for Android.

Resolved?
Working in Firefox OS too, because of the responsive design.
