This happened in beta and posted same question. Accessing www.yahoo.co.jp is redirected to m.yahoo.co.jp in google browser (Dolphin browser as well) by default. But not for Firefox. Then I added "general.useragent.override" in about:config with "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 4.0.3; ja-jp; URBANO PROGRESSO Build/010.0.3000) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/534.30"This is my phone agent got from google browser. After clear all private data except password , it is redirected to m.yahoo.co.jp but display is corrupted .Buttons are vertically aligned where should be horizontal .

Any help? I captured images but can not pose here...

You can attach images to a reply; it is still a "to do" item to be able to add them to your original question.

It's possible that Yahoo is not serving the mobile page for the reason you discovered, that it doesn't look right in Firefox. However, that's just a guess.

On the third one, the page layout is too wide for the screen size available. Can you fix it by pinching the page in to zoom it smaller? I guess even then the horizontal vs. vertical layout of some buttons would be incorrect. Hmm...

I noticed the page displayed in Chrome also has this link: http://smart.yahoo.co.jp/ and although that displays in Firefox for Android, the layout is again too wide for portrait mode.

Not sure why they aren't offering better mobile support for Firefox.
