When I try to watch a video on Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/18011143 to be exact) with everything.me provided Vimeo app, everything works fine and the video plays well.
When I try to go the same page with Browser, the website tells me that it has not been optimized for mobile.

Is it that the website sniffs poorly? If yes, could somebody talk with Vimeo people so that they make their website to recognize the Browser as a mobile one?

Using Firefox Desktop 24a2 on Debian Sid GNU/Linux 64 bits from Debian Mozilla team repository in its Aurora flavour with "media.gstreamer.enabled" pref set to "true", i can't see the either either unless i use the trick mentioned here [1] : changing the url from https://vimeo.com/18011143 to http://player.vimeo.com/video/18011143

Two questions:

1. When launching the Vimeo everything.me app, what's the launch URL?

2. When going to the Vimeo site on the web, what's the initial URL you go to?

How should I know? I have tried adb logcat when running vimeo app, but I don't get anything useful there.

Vimeo videos play generally fine for me in FxOS 1.1
