I think it is a fault of Because when I change my user-agent with "Request desktop site", `Photo` button is enabled(in mobile site). And I can upload media files and it works.

It's not a bug in Fennec but I think it should be reported.

Not sure, I'm pretty sure we support the technologies and API's they are using (i.e., local storage). Is there something Facebook is using on that page that Gecko does not yet support?

Facebook is the #2 site on alexa. Also happens a top app. This relates to mobile web compatibility story for k9o, so nominating for kilimanjaro.

I sent a complaint to them via Not sure if some web form is the best way for this. Don't we have some Facebook contact in bugzilla which we can CC to such bugs?

Is there anything we can change on the Mozilla end to support this?  Thanks.
We may be able to get around this by spoofing the UA we send to Facebook to be the Android UA. We'll have to test well as this may introduce other issues.
Filed a bug internally at FB.

Yes. Harald is working with Facebook on a shortlist of outstanding issues that includes this one.
How about this issue?

I'm seeing different behavior here on FxAndroid today - haven't had the chance to fully test yet. qawanted for retest.

Note - FF OS vs. FxAndroid from what I quickly saw now get entirely different content served to each other.
Aaron has confirmed with a simple test pass that this is now working on FxAndroid. I'll file a separate bug though for FF OS, given that we'll still have to do outreach there separately.
