      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Cloud. Using Confluence Server? See the corresponding suggestion.

      We have noticed that Confluence checks to see if a user is using an iPhone browser (or Android browser) and sends different content to those users that does not use scrollable divs.

      the BlackBerry 6 browser is basically the same browser as iPhone and Android, Confluence should be checking for and sending the same content to the new BlackBerry 6 browser as well.

      Here is a recent blog post on our public Developers Blog that describes how to detect a BB6 browser:
      (update: and support to the latest blackberry as well)

      Please advise if this FE can be back dated to previous versions of Confluence, or if an upgrade would be required to get this functionality.

      Partial Workaround

      From http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-WebWorks-Development/How-to-detect-the-BlackBerry-Browser/ta-p/559862

      Add these to the Confluence's Custom HTML

      <script type="text/javascript">   
         var ua = navigator.userAgent;
         var url = "http://optimizedmobile.yoursite.com/";
         if (ua.indexOf("BB10") >= 0)
            if (ua.indexOf("WebKit") >= 0)
               window.location = url;

      Note: The above example is for BB10 device

      The limitation of this workaround would be:

      1. Cannot go back to desktop view
      2. Clicking on a link from an email will not re-direct to the mobile view
