Page should not be loaded in Reader Mode after the pref was disabled
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 Steps to reproduce: 1. Open Nightly; 2. Go to about:preferences and disable e10s (un-tick the "Enable E10S" option from the General Tab.) 2. Go to a page and enable Reader Mode (eg. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/mission/); 3. Open a newtab and go to about:config; 4. Search for reader.parse-on-load.enabled and switch the pref to false (disable Reader Mode); 5. Switch back to the previous page and restart the browser. Expected Results: The page is normally loaded and the Reader Mode icon is no longer displayed. Actual Results: The page is still displayed in Reader Mode (even if the feature was disabled). Notes: This issue reproduces on latest Nightly, build ID: 20150316030202. It affects Windows 7 64-bit, Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit and Mac OS X 10.9.5.
Flipping "reader.parse-on-load.enabled" only disables the parse-on-load functionality, not about:reader. There is currently no way to disable loading about:reader if the user chooses to load a URL with it. As this is not intended to be a user-facing pref, we shouldn't need to worry about session restore for users, so I'm going to close this.
