I reproduced it with the mentioned developer's mode predefined small screen
option, too, but, in fact, the one who reported the problem was talking about a
480x800 screen size of his Samsung Galaxy cellphone, as far as I recall.
Another Web Developer's extension to Firefox/Iceweasel might be useful as well:
it provides the option to define any window size and to check out the result
from within Firefox.
There is a separate User Agent Switcher Firefox extension (2), also developped
by him, with which you can reproduce the representation with different user
agents. It is possible to import any existing user agent list or to set up a
user-defined list on your own and import it. An updated list of them is
available on (3).

Anyway, by defining 480x800 window size with (1) with the reported Samsung
Galaxy (I tried all Galaxy models available in (2,3) and also with Nokia Lumia's
only model listed in (2,3) results in: The "next" arrow icon sticks to the right
edge of the window and no "previous" arrow or house icon in sight either.

I am not a professional web designer, but as Stéphane puts it, the Chapter
2.html file is too "crowded" by style information that should be better put into
the .css, at least, that's my five cent.

I checked the Google's PageSpeed Insights and downloaded the latest
documentation on that issue W3C's CSS Device Adaptation, for instance. If I come
about a decent (laymen's ;) solution I am going to hand it in.
