This shouldn't happen after bug 1166771 landed. Cc-ing Gijs for details.

Why not? I tried one of the testcases, and it does actually work in reader mode (though the video disappears), so I don't think showing the icon is "wrong" per se, even if it'd be better if we didn't.

This doesn't really have much to do with bug 1166771, except that before that landed, we would have kept the icon there when going to other youtube pages, and now it will disappear as you navigate.

PS: in future, please needinfo me if you'd like me to look at a bug. :-)
