.globeandmail .ca is displayed poorly in Browser
The Globe and Mail is Canada's paper of record, and its mobile site shows up horribly in the b2g browser. STR: 1. open Browser app 2. go to www.globeandmail.ca -- will redirect to m.globeandmail.com Expected result: display parity with other smartphones. Observed results: see attached screen shots.
The headlines are all jumbled together, separator lines are missing, and (not shown) photos which should appear left-aligned are all over the place.

As an extra data-point, my BlackBerry (running OS 7.1 which has a WebKit-based browser) renders the m.theglobeandmail.com page properly.
Moving this to Mobile, nobody is really paying attention to these language components (AFAIK).

Apparently they're doing some server-side detection that fails to recognize Firefox OS devices as mobile: Selected response headers for Firefox OS: Response for: 'Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.1) Gecko/18.1 Firefox/18.1' Response Status: 301 location: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/ Selected response headers for Firefox for Android: Response for: 'Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:27.0) Gecko/27.0 Firefox/27.0' Response Status: 302 location: http://m.theglobeandmail.com/?service=mobile The suggested fix would be to send Firefox OS to the same location as Firefox for Android.

So there is a regression. Firefox OS receives again the desktop site. Let deal with this on https://webcompat.com/issues/1365 instead of here. I keep here closed.
