This site does server-side sniffing to distinguish mobile and desktop browsers. It then redirects from a JavaScript to either desktop or mobile content. If the backend sniffing detects a desktop browser, it sends this script:

   <script type="text/javascript">
window.location = ""

and if it detects what it thinks is a mobile, it sends this:

   <script type="text/javascript">
window.location = ""

Can you help here too? First checking if the bug is still there. If so, afterwards writing to Dielli guys to let them know about the issue. TIA

The desktop version shows up for me on Firefox OS (and also Firefox for Android)
I'd need to click on "show mobile version" on the page to access the mobile layout.

Do you want me to write Dielli an email about this?

Since it affects Firefox for Android too, it would help to let them know about the issue and see what they have to say, before marking this as a wontfix. So please do write to them.
(What happens in other mobile browsers like the Android stock browser or Safari on iPhone? If these browsers get the same content with a "click  to see mobile version" link, we can consider this OK.)
