No description provided.
The ehowenespanol.com site intends to send mobile browsers a simplified site. However, it's not detecting Firefox OS devices correctly as smartphones. Some HTTP traffic analysis shows how the server-side sniffing works:

Significant difference in source code:
Smallest response has Content-Length: 8057
Largest response has Content-Length: 58521


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

Response for: 'Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:18.1) Gecko/18.1 Firefox/18.1'
Response Status: 200
content-length: 58521
content-type: text/html

Response for: 'Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:26.0) Gecko/26.0 Firefox/26.0'
Response Status: 200

Response for: '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'

It is responsive but it is somewhat desktop-minded. I get a list of article links w/pictures, but all smaller pictures require hovering the image to see the article title and description - hover effects won't work on a touch screen. Clicking through to an article tends to give me a desktop page, haven't found a mobile or responsive one yet. All in all, I think it's not good enough to call fixed.
