Could you elaborate? What mobile device are you running Gentoo on? What pages did you want it to use instead of HTML?

No - I do not run Gentoo an a mobile device - I do run it on a straight notebook. But pages like heise.de, spiegel.de and sz.de jst presents me the mobile pages first (not always - and if I allow cookies/scripts, even temporary, then the issue went away). Unfortunately it is random behaviour.

Do you by any chance have the User Agent Switcher add-on installed and the wrong user agent selected?

Even if you do not have User Agent Switcher installed, other things to check are the about:config preferences. These are the preferences in Firefox 26 on the machine I'm typing this (which does not exhibit the problem you have):

Code:
Preference Name                              Status               Type                Value
general.useragent.compatMode.firefox         default              boolean             false
general.useragent.enable_overrides           default              boolean             false
general.useragent.locale                     default              string              en-GB
general.useragent.site_specific_overrides    default              boolean             true

Yes.
Althought I do have nearly the same preferences (e-US instead of en-GB) - I just removed it - will see, if that helps.
