Their mobile Web site has been designed with WebKit in mind. Though it would not be hard to fix.


iOS and Chrome receives the mobile content.
Firefox OS is staying on the desktop content
Opera Android, UCWeb, Firefox for Android receives the message Not supported. It's specifically bad for Opera and UCWeb because they have no issues displaying the Web site which is Webkit only.

Honestly this is the best we can get.
The site is a paywall working only with a couple of phones and Japanese operators for billing.

This is potential WONTFIX or WORKSFORME.

Not all Android phones are allowed for example.
Priority: -- → P5
Closing as we are not working on Firefox OS anymore.
