See bug 1381992, comment 54 and following.

A fairly common use case for a reader mode API would be "readerize every eligible page".

For this use case it would be helpful to have an option to tabs.toggleReaderMode() like the 'loadReplace' option to tabs.update(), that replaces the original page in the tab's session history. Otherwise the Back button is broken.

(I'm not sure if there is an alternative/better way to implement "readerize every eligible page" without breaking the Back button. If there is, this API might not be needed.)
