No description provided.
The ole.com.ar server has three different mobile site URLs (!): ios.ole.com.ar, android.ole.com.ar and mobile.ole.com.ar . The latter one seems to be somewhat simplified. I think serving android.ole.com.ar to Firefox OS would work best, Firefox on Android gets this version and I don't see any problems with its rendering. Videos in the "TV" section work fine too.

Here's some HTTP-traffic (selected headers) to demonstrate the backend browser sniffing, one request with an iOS User-Agent and one request with an Android browser:

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: www.ole.com.ar
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A5376e Safari/8536.25

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://ios.ole.com.ar/
Date: Mon, 03 Mar 2014 22:00:07 GMT
------------------------------------------------------------------
GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: www.ole.com.ar
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.3; HTCONE Build/JSS15J) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/534.30

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://android.ole.com.ar/
Date: Mon, 03 Mar 2014 22:01:00 GMT
------------------------------------------------------------------

While this request with a typical Firefox OS 1.1 User-Agent is not redirected to a mobile site:

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: www.ole.com.ar
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
