This is a regression from bug 829596 Our hack is broken! http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/mobile/android/chrome/content/browser.js#2636
Proposed fix: * compile the regex ahead of time * look for a phone UA and if we don't find one, assume tablet UA, and change the UA to phone UA Testing patch...
