Description

4 years ago
Navigating to www.alc.co.jp returns the desktop version on Firefox OS.

I'm pretty sure that on Firefox for Android it redirects to http://www.alc.co.jp/smp/ which is a smartphone version of the site. If it doesn't redirect automatically, at least it offers a link to it.

Navigating directly to http://www.alc.co.jp/smp/ with Firefox OS results in a redirect back to http://www.alc.co.jp/ making it impossible to use the smartphone version.

Tested with Fx0.
As evident from the Content-Length headers below, there's server-side browser sniffing involved:

When they was developing their addon, we have a contact.  But I don't know that contact is still valid.

We should talk with dynamis and Yasue-san.
