tor.com 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.

Peter, do you know somebody who works on the tor.com website that might be able to fix this? Basically, this bug is "tor.com website has a bug where it treats requests from a desktop browser instead of a mobile browser" or similar.

For reference, the Firefox OS UA is:

Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18

See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Browser_detection_using_the_user_agent for our general recommendations about how to do UA-based detection.

I think there is confusion. :)
the site is http://tor.com/ SF site
not http//torproject.org/ 

I'm removing the torproject people so they are not polluted by the mail :)

Trying to contact Ann Gala, as the webmaster address is a blackhole.
