I'm fairly obviously not working on this, so I'm unassigning myself in the hopes that someone will pick it up.

This would be really easy to fix.

We do already have UI telemetry in place for some buttons:
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/reader/AboutReader.jsm?force=1#843

Why we don't do this for all buttons, I don't know.

Also, on the Android side, we have events for the reader view button in the toolbar:
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/mobile/android/chrome/content/Reader.js#156

You could probably just add something similar for desktop.
We already have telemetry data indicating how often people use reader mode.

I don't really know why we'd need/want telemetry for how often people use the type controls, that is, I don't know what the motivation for collecting that data would be, so I'm going to mark this wontfix. If we decide we want particular data for particular reasons later, we can start collecting it. "Just because we can" isn't really enough of a justification. :-)

Where can people find the telemetry data indicating how often people use reader mode on Firefox Desktop? I only could find the data for Fennec.
