Twitter Card Preview doesn't work with Firefox, it only supports Web
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20130511120803 Steps to reproduce: I've tried to use Twitter service to implement Twitter cards, the Card validator : https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards/validation/validator Actual results: The previsualisation says "Card previews are not supported in this browser. Please use a WebKit-based browser." :-& Expected results: Display the previsualisation, as for every tweet that uses Twitter cards. (works on Firefox on Twitter web client)
While using this in Chrome, I don't see anything obvious that Gecko can't do. Lawrence: Do we have contacts at Twitter to look into what's preventing them to serve this content to Gecko?
Ouch. I pinged Twitter via Twitter. https://twitter.com/mmmandel/status/339763054973685761
Changing the summary for discoverability.
Summary: Twitter cards previsualisator webkit only → Twitter Card Preview doesn't work with Firefox, it only supports WebKit-based browsers
Spoofing the UA in Firefox the blocker goes away but the preview doesn't render properly. I'm not sure what's causing it, I do see some webkit flexbox code in there. Maybe Hallvord can take a look?

Indeed - just making sure there are equivalents to the flexbox styles will go a long way: -webkit-box-sizing: border-box; display: -webkit-box; -webkit-box-pack: start; -webkit-box-align: stretch; -webkit-box-orient: horizontal; needs these standards-compatible equivalents: box-sizing: border-box; display: flex; justify-content: flex-start; align-items: stretch; flex-direction: row;
Like I said here https://github.com/webcompat/web-bugs/issues/6#issuecomment-58801132 Seems to work now: Firefox (Mac + Windows) IE 11 ( Windows 7)
Thanks Guillaume. Confirmed that it's working here.
