Open Bug 1163526 Opened 5 years ago Updated 4 months ago
Reader View promo panel is automatically dismissed
Reproducible on latest 40.0a1 (2015-05-10) Affected platforms: Mac OS X 10.9.5 and Ubuntu 14.04 x64 Steps to reproduce: 1. Launch Firefox with a clean profile. 2. Navigate to a Reader View compatible page, e.g. http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/03/30/the-path-toward-tomorrows-internet/ Expected result: The Reader View promo panel is displayed. Actual result: The Reader View promo panel is displayed and automatically dismissed. Notes: 1. Not reproducible on Windows 7 x64 nor Windows 8.1 x86 2. Screencast: https://goo.gl/NkewDG
Also reproducible on Firefox 38.0.5b1 (20150510205200).
Any idea why this is only happening on OSX and Linux?
I suspect this is related to the function getting called multiple times due to subframes which probably aren't relevant to reader view and should be ignored. I think it should happen the same on every platform but perhaps a different ad network on sub-frames were served. Dolske, can you find an owner for this?

AboutReaderListener.handleEvent() is filtering out subframe events, so that shouldn't be the cause here. Alas I can't reproduce this with the URL in comment 0.
