Firefox Tracking Flags

(Not tracked)


(Whiteboard: [uaoverride] [country-all] [serversniff] [sitewait], URL) 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.
Blocks: 766947
Whiteboard: [uaoverride] also doesn't recognize Fennec as mobile.
OS: Gonk (Firefox OS) → All
Summary: doesn't recognize B2G UA as mobile → doesn't recognize Fennec or B2G UA as mobile

ok that is quite interesting, and opposite to the usual thing. the Mobile is working but not the Android Mobile.

→ http HEAD  User-Agent:'Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0'

I have tested on ZTE device after removing the and confirmed it is working. I haven't tested on Android (my device is not with me now.).
I get desktop content in Firefox for Android with a banner ad to install their Android app.
(Fennec issue is tracked in bug 766951 - do you want to track them both in this and mark that as dup, or track them separately?)

Usually I prefer to track them separately specifically because the UA override is not the same and that's two different lists.

So it's a bit messy.

Opera Mobile + Android -> Mobile (graphics)
Firefox OS   + ZTE     -> Mobile (text)
Opera Mini   + Android -> Desktop
Firefox      + Android -> Desktop

Opera Mobile, Firefox for Android and Firefox OS should receive the graphical mobile version
Opera Mini should receive the mobile text version.

We need to open a new bug on this one. They went to a low text version.
Or to follow up on
I want to keep this one closed at it was about the UA override.
