Force Enable Zooming (ignore metatag 'initial-scale') fails on *this* website

Firefox on android has a very good feature which enables users to disable the automatic page zoom decided unilaterally by some wisecrack website designer whose decision affects visually challenged people.

Just enable: Settings->Accessibility->Always Enable Zoom (see also

This works very well on most websites but on at least one website it fails. I can not pinch+zoom. For example here:

The above, in combination with their failure to get my correct screen size (ok my phone is old, perhaps it is not their fault), consistently shows only the half-left content from that website. I need to set my phone on landscape mode in order to be able to see the full content (from left to right) and that does not always work.

I see on the html source of said website this:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=0, viewport-fit=cover" />

Can this be solved? It’s a pity some “designers” disrespect so much user choice and visually challenged user choice can be a serious matter.

I am using Firefox from day1 of acquiring a smart phone and never looked back to any of the other choices. A BIG THANK YOU to you all Firefox developers for this Open Source product.

Many thanks,
