It loads identically on Keon and desktop for me.
This site does server-side sniffing to distinguish mobile and desktop browsers. It then redirects from a JavaScript to either desktop or mobile content. Unfortunately, it fails to detect Firefox OS phones as smartphone devices

If the backend sniffing detects a desktop browser, it sends this script:

   <script type="text/javascript">
<!--
window.location = "http://77news.al/index.php"
//-->
</script>

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

   <script type="text/javascript">
<!--
window.location = "http://77news.al/mobile/"
//-->
</script>

(This is exactly same solution as dielli.al, BTW - maybe they use the same backend? See bug 981385.)

Elio,

Can you help here too? First checking if the bug is still there. If so, afterwards writing to 77news.al guys to let them know about the issue. TIA

I think the website does not exist anymore (or in the best case is currently down, but google gives me no results)
