Description

The new grooveshark page does browser sniffing, so it does not offer the mobile html5 site when accessing from Firefox Mobile.

http://grooveshark.com/ should redirect to http://mobile.grooveshark.com/ offering http://html5.grooveshark.com/ which is compatible with Firefox Mobile (some minor problems related with webkit css)

Also with some minor improvements their html5 site could be a great app for Firefox Marketplace ;)

Uploading screenshot of what I see. The landing page offers links to native apps, but gives you the choice to use the html5/touch site (which seems to work pretty well).
If anything, we could suggest that they add "<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width"> to make their mobile landing site friendlier.
Actually, let's fix this as we do get redirected to mobile.grooveshark.com now. I'll email about meta viewport, but that really isn't a dealbreaker.
