eluniversal.com.mx 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.

Is the override still needed?

This newspaper now even has a Firefox OS application over at https://marketplace.firefox.com/app/el-universal-1

The main site is still sending the desktop site to Firefox OS.

This website is using server side user agent detection to determine if a user is browsing using a desktop or mobile client. Unfortunately the site is not properly detecting the user agent string for mobile Firefox browsers. This is causing Firefox mobile browsers to be redirected to the desktop version of the website rather than mobile.
No response, trying Facebook.
Contacted the Web Operations Manager of El Universal.

Hi, good morning, my name is Erick

I´m in charge of the technical support for the app EL UNIVERSAL in Firefox OS. We released the application the last year, at that time everything was working well, I´m going to try to duplicate the error that you mention and then we are going to send a new release. 

In this moment I can´t see the error beacuse I´m working with a simulator and I see the app opens well, but I notice some issues with the navigation, the app don´t recognize some touch area, I don´t know if this is a problem with the simulator

Thanks, we are in touch

So yes you can't see the issue with the simulator, because the simulator applies the same UA override  than the device, which is basically lying about the user agent. 

BUT I check on a device with UA override deactivated, and now you have fixed the issue. So that's cool. 

Thanks a lot.

Regression. Let's reopen.
Removing the UA override flag though.
