Walmart serves an outdated mobile site to fennec native, not the mobile optimized site seen on webkit. UA sniffing is evident.

Component: Evangelism → Mobile
Product: Firefox for Android → Tech Evangelism
Version: Firefox 15 → unspecified
Todo-list for walmart developers:
 * Fix -webkit-* based styling that makes the fancy walmart.com version break in Firefox
 * Fix browser sniffing to give Firefox for Android the fancy version (currently gets a simplified mobile site)
 * Fix browser sniffing to give FirefoxOS that same version (currently gets desktop site)

Summary: Walmart serves fennec native an outdated mobile site, not the optimized site seen on webkit → Walmart serves Firefox mobile browsers an outdated mobile site, not the optimized site seen on webkit (and the optimised site uses -webkit- styling and needs adapting)

From Canada, on Walmart site http://www.walmart.com/

# Firefox Android, iOS, Firefox OS

1. Go to http://www.walmart.com/
2. The screen offers Canada or USA. Small typos. There's no viewport information
3. Select Canada

* On iOS, receiving optimized mobile content on http://www.walmart.ca/en
* on Firefox Android, receiving optimized mobile content (same than iOS)
* on Firefox OS, receiving optimized mobile content (same than iOS)

4. Select USA

* On iOS, receiving desktop content http://www.walmart.com/
* on Firefox Android, receiving desktop content
* on Firefox OS, receiving desktop content


Hmm not sure we can do anything here. Except telling them to adopt the Canadian site. :)

Reopen if you have a different behavior on the USA sites for some devices/browsers.

I get a lovely mobile site on FxOS here - testing extension says it was fixed at some point during the last month (between the two test runs I'm comparing) - but I have no idea what the site looks like from inside the U.S. .. Mike, could you verify a fix here?

We get a nice enough site, but it's not the same as what Chrome Mobile is served. Uploading both screenshot.

So. We get a working site, but it's not as shiny as the one Chrome gets. Reopen?
Now they regressed to sending desktop content to Firefox OS.. :-/

Trying to contact a human person, but maybe a shot in the dark.

The mobile site seems to no longer have -webkit- CSS problems :D
They still detect Firefoxes and send them to the desktop site by default though. Typing in mobile.walmart.com manually keeps you on the mobile site.
