Badoo sends wap (ugly) website to Firefox OS, while "HTML5 app" to Firefox for Android.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Using Firefox OS UA string, go to badoo.com.
2. Get http://mus1.badoo.com/en/landing
3. Using Firefox for Android UA string, go to badoo.com
4. Get http://mus1.badoo.com/app/ 

Expected results:
Get http://mus1.badoo.com/app/  in both Firefox OS and Firefox for Android.
The site intends to distinguish between simpler feature phones and smartphone browsers. Unfortunately, it detects Firefox OS devices as feature phones and send them the simplest website, although the browser should be capable of handling the smartphone site.

Here's some analysis of HTTP traffic to show how their browser detection works:

Firefox Android and Safari on iPhone are redirected to http://meu1.badoo.com/?c=badoo.webredirect&promo=true&_=7920200, Firefox OS not redirected

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