the reading list sidebar isn't very discoverable.

currently the ui involves primarily a "+" button which has a tooltip of "Add page to Reading List".  clicking it only appears to toggle it to "-".

the problem i had initially was "ok, now what?".  i toggled it a few times, but unlike the bookmarking a page there wasn't a snazzy animation guiding you towards the "show your bookmarks" button.  there isn't even a toolbar button i can add to show the reading list.

i started hunting around the menus, and found it in the "sidebars" submenu -- my initial scan of menuitems was limited to top-level items.

i think that some feedback should be provided indicating what has happened beyond changing a "+" to a "-".
Are there other related bugs/plans to make the sidebar more discoverable?

Indeed there are, bug 1133485 should open the sidebar on first use.  I'm wondering why you didn't see this happen since that fix should have landed in Aurora last week I believe.

It did not happen for me on Nightly for Mac and/or for Linux.
