Steps to reproduce:

Open this long article:

Then choose the "Reader View" icon in the address bar.

(I have tested on Nightly 60.0a1, and this problem is still present.)

Actual results:

Reader View opens, but the content begins at section "V. Get Wet and You Die", which is half-way through the entire article.  The top half is entirely missing from the Reader View page.

Expected results:

Reader View should have started at the top of the article.

The DOM is a little funky but cutting out midway through the <article> element seems like a mistake.

Happy to help where I can.
