Description

1) Navigate to http://dmvresistance.org
2) Click the "DMV Resistance Community" link

Expected: Mobile Google+ opens
Actual: 404

Using phony to change users agents (after clicking the link) and then refreshing, Firefox for Android and Firefox OS give 404s but Android phone, iPhone, and any non-mobile browser load correctly.

Running "stable", presumably FF 32.

Looks good. FWIW, Google Plus is the one redirecting to the mobile page that 404s only with a Firefox UA.
Switching UA to iPhone/Android and refreshing the mobile URL they redirect you to renders nicely, without any visible change in the URL.
So does "request desktop site" which redirects to the non-mobile page.
I can reproduce this on Alcatel One Touch (Android 4.1.2) and Samsung Galaxy S5 (Android 4.4.) on latest nightly (01-10-2014). Clicking the "DMV Resistance Community" link redirects you to the "404. That's an error". Google + page is displayed by going to Settings -> Request Desktop Site.

Nice, and yeah, that 2nd URL is the mobile site which has different UA behaviour:

curl -ILA "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X)" https://plus.google.com/app/basic/communities/103349576921336760265
fetches a page
as does
curl -ILA "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.1; Galaxy Nexus Build/JRN84D) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.166 Mobile Safari/535.19 " https://plus.google.com/app/basic/communities/103349576921336760265
(different headers tho)


while
curl -ILA "Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:32.0) Gecko/32.0 Firefox/32.0" https://plus.google.com/app/basic/communities/103349576921336760265
404s
as does
curl -ILA "Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0" https://plus.google.com/app/basic/communities/103349576921336760265

aaaand for that matter
curl -ILA "Hi. I am a browser." https://plus.google.com/app/basic/communities/103349576921336760265
also 404s.

And, I'm sure this surprised no one at all, but sure enough, it seems all google plus communities are blocked from firefox mobile   Tried a few random ones using curl.  Worked w/ Chrome/iPhone UA, blocked with Firefox.  (oups, used wrong text field, sorry. moved)
