This site intends to send mobile browsers to a mobile site, but doesn't know that Firefox OS devices are smartphones. Hence the browser on Firefox OS phones get desktop content instead of mobile.

The HTTP traffic analysis below shows how the sniffing works:

Firefox OS redirected to http://www.sixt.de/, Firefox Android redirected to http://m.sixt.de

Selected HTTP response headers:
