The alamaula.com site is set up to redirect mobile browsers to their mobile site.

Unfortunately, it does not recognise Firefox OS devices as smartphones. Here's some HTTP traffic analysis that shows how their server-side detection works:

Firefox Android and Safari on iPhone are redirected to http://m.alamaula.com/region/set/ar/, Firefox OS not redirected

Selected HTTP response headers (Firefox OS, Firefox on Android, Safari on iPhone):
