(Whiteboard: [uaoverride] [country-br] [sitewait] [clientsniff]) serves a desktop site to B2G. Bug 819210 added an UA override for this domain. The override should be removed once the domain serves mobile content to B2G. This bug tracks the evangelism for the site to recognize the B2G UA and the removal of the override at that time.
Whiteboard: [uaoverride] → [uaoverride] [country-br]
Trying to check how the redirection is done. This seems to be done through JS and not at the HTTP level. I put the relevant piece of code into gist.

 'matcherMobile': /android.*mobile|blackberry|docomo|fennec|htc|ip(?:hone|od)|lge|mot|netfront|nokia|opera\sm(?:ini|obi)|samsung-gt-s8500|skyfire|up\.browser|vx10000|wap|windows\s(?:ce|mobile\s7|phone\sos\s7)/i,
'matcherNotMobile': /android.*(gt-(?:p|n)|shw-|sc-01c|sch-i800|f-01d|ct100)|tablet|xoom/i,
'matcherMobileReferrer': /m\.globo\.com/,

Firefox OS User agent string is 

"Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0" 

It is not matching any of the mobile keyword. I would encourage you to match any mobile. There is a tablet in the NotMobile so that will fix for those who have "Mobile Tablet". Better would be responsive design and features detection, but that is another jam. :)

I will contact people at Globo.

Trying to have contact again.
Hello, I contacted 2 friends from Andre Fonseca and Davidson Fellipe. They are web developers and maybe can help us on this.
Contacted one of my contacts there to see if we could move forward. There is no resolution on this.
sent a reminder yesterday but no answers :/
I have been trying to contact someone else through techtudo issue who is the Mobile Product Manager of So we will see.

Brogan, did you remove the UA override before testing?

Globo is still not sending Firefox OS to the mobile content.

For, please open a separate bug. 
Thanks for pointing out this one.
You can use that form:

ua-update.json was not removed before testing. When rule was removed the issue was found to still reproduce.

Karl, I got a tweet today saying they've launched a fully responsive site now: Can you test with override disabled?
I've tested this on Firefox OS 1.1 and 1.2 already (using the Bocoup ODL devices), it's working just fine. Touch events for horizontaly sliding content, opening accordion styled content, etc.

I would say it's fixed. 

Btw, it didn't find this issue searching on, that's why I've sent the tweet.
Yes Working for me too.
This is fixed! Finally and for anyone. Hurrah!
We can also remove the UA override.
