(Whiteboard: [uaoverride] [country-es] [serversniff] [contactready]) serves a desktop site to B2G. Bug 823364 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.

Stephane, do you know who I should ping at Orange for these issues since you left ;) Thanks.

Received a response on Twitter: They also asked for my email address by DM.
Received response they have tested on the simulator and not found an error. I explained the UA override and how they can detect a Firefox OS device.
And this is fixed! Thanks Orange. Thanks Adam.
