* Open https://m.facebook.com/hackercup/round/742957399195355/ in Firefox for iOS.
* The mobile page says "Sorry, something went wrong."
* Tap "Request Desktop Site" in the Share menu.

Expected:
Be redirected to https://www.facebook.com/hackercup/round/742957399195355/ where there are instructions, scoreboard, problems, etc, just like I would see in Chrome.

Actual:
Still in the "Sorry, something went wrong." page.
Component: Menu and Toolbar → General
platform-rel: --- → ?

This also happens in Safari. Is there an alternative link to this page?

Additional comment: facebook does not seem to support 'Request Desktop Site' at all. When I log in to Facebook and use RDS from either Safari or Firefox, it simply reloads the same mobile version of the page. I am not sure if this is something we can fix. Some sites make an effort to decide on their own how they want to be rendered.
