Description

4 years ago
The match.com site has a basic mobile site for feature phones and a fancier mobile site for touch phones. Unfortunately, Firefox OS devices get the most basic version of the site even though they are modern touch phones.

The HTTP analysis below shows how the sniffing works:

Firefox Android redirected to /en-us/match/mobile/android/device.html, Firefox OS not redirected

Selected HTTP response headers:

Response for: 'Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.1) Gecko/18.1 Firefox/18.1'
Response Status: 200
content-length: 10089
content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8

Some contact options:

Website email form - has option for Technical Issues, Mobile or Suggestions - http://www.match.com/help/help.aspx?lid=4

Twitter account - they do reply to tweets but seem to forward most concerns to support (either phone or website email) - https://twitter.com/Match

Probably the best contact -  Eric Sowell, Manager of Mobile Web Applications at Match.com
