Diffing the served HTML, there's an extra script served to Desktop:

<script charset="UTF-8" src="//dnqgz544uhbo8.cloudfront.net/_/fp/js/main-base.bundle.W3Zj1k9jxkJHKv_F7wNN9g.js"></script>

There's a global "PLOVR_MODULE_INFO" that's introduced in that script which looks like it's responsible for fetching comment data and templating.

We need to reach out to medium and ask that they serve the same JS file to Firefox for Android (and FxOS) that they serve to Chrome Mobile and Firefox Desktop.

I tweeted at them, https://twitter.com/MozWebCompat/status/408633054408622080

Their FAQ states,

"How can I contact you?
You can tweet to us @Medium, email us at yourfriends@medium.com, or leave a note on this story."

Let's give them a day or two to respond to the tweet before emailing.

Unassigning myself, we never got a response from the tweet.
