(Whiteboard: [uaoverride] [country-ve] [serversniff] [sitewait]) 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.
Whiteboard: [uaoverride]
I've been checking this bug with Keon and it seems mercadolibre has already do the change to recognize Firefox OS.

Please verify.

This bug is also related with bug 826342 and bug 827661 as this is the same company.
Whiteboard: [uaoverride] → [uaoverride] [country-ve]
You have to be sure to remove the UA override for testing. On a firefox OS device without UA override you will get the desktop site. 

It would be cool if you could find the right contact and/or contact them.
See below.

Server side user agent detection without redirection to a specific domain name.

To be detected 

FANUA='Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0'
FOSUA='Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0'

→ http -b GET User-Agent:"$FANUA" | grep -i "xdevicetype\|ismobile"
			    	"xDeviceType": "mobile",
			    	"isMobile": true,

→ http -b GET User-Agent:"$FOSUA" | grep -i "xdevicetype\|ismobile"
		    	xDeviceType: "desktop",

Firefox OS is receiving the desktop site. 

It needs to be contacted
