B2G isn't getting served the mobile theme, which appears to be an official-ish Wordpress one:

Theme Name: Minileven

Description: The Minileven theme is a clean, lightweight mobile experience for your blog based on Twenty Eleven.

Note the mobile-theme class added to <body>, <body class="home blog mobile-theme">.

Given, I wonder if this is an older WP install (perhaps with outdated mobile detection), or if this is still an issue for newer WP blogs.

On second thought, removing [contactready] until we can determine if this is a only problem (ideally with a suggestion on how to fix), or a larger official WordPress theme issue.

I created a test blog, with the Twenty Eleven theme and enabled the Minileven mobile theme. Testing against FxOS, the mobile styles are applied. So that means we probably need to ask to update to the latest version of those themes.

Sent again an email yesterday. Got an answer. 
Explained the issues and how to test.
So the person in contact replied nicely.

> It seems that W3 Cache plugin we use on both website messes things up.

I will try to see if we can do anything with w3cacheplugin
Reminder: This is about Bug 934105 too. The person confirmed that they used the same type of setup.
