Steps to reproduce:

web page: (when shown on Android phone) in Firefox has the main menu under the menu icon (the standard RWD menu icon).

Please note, this works on all other platforms (with Firefox also) and with other newer browsers. And no specific errors are shown in the inspector. 

Not working example:

Actual results:

The menu is not shown, the (standard) "anchor" action is triggered instead of the jquery plugin action. Therefore showing (the unformatted menu) at the bottom of the web page. We think the system has trouble with the "base" url which is "". 

Expected results:

When clicked, the icon should have shown the menu with submenus etc.. However the submenus are shown only when the visitor is not on the root web page. If the user is on the root web page, the plugin does not work.

They pulled in the fix -- so the site needs to update from 2.2.2 to at least 2.5.0.

The mmenu plugin itself appears to work just fine in Fennec (tested from
