These are all lists of articles, so maybe this is the same issue as bug 1134810? (Except that could probably be fixed by filtering about:* documents...)
Component: General → Reader Mode
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
First URL in comment 0 at least gives plausible results, so P4, whereas second URL gives a fairly useless page, so P3. But it seems less likely that someone would use reader mode on a front page like the second URL, so P4!
Priority: -- → P4
We do have some logic in place to avoid parsing "home pages", but it is crudely based on the url:
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/reader/ReaderMode.jsm?force=1#181
At the moment, the reader button is not offered on these pages.
Let's reopen if this happens again and we have a clearer testcase.
