Bugbug thinks this bug should belong to this component, but please revert this change in case of error.

Component: Untriaged → Reader Mode
Product: Firefox → Toolkit shows the same problem - the reader view starts at Chapter 4.

(In reply to Andrew Aitchison from comment #2) shows the same problem - the reader view starts at Chapter 4.

Should have said that this is with Firefox 74.0 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0, on Ubuntu 19.10.

(Based upon
#1623397 is not a duplicate of #1571736
I cannot reproduce #1623397 with either "Firefox 75.0 (64-bit) for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0",
"Firefox Preview 3 April 2020, on Android (arm)" or "Firefox 68.7.0, Android Arm" - in each case shows the whole text (but not the images) in reader-mode.
But with these same 3 browsers, I can reproduce #1571736 as they all start at "Chapter 4" and omit Example 1 from in reader-mode. shows the same problem. Reader view skips the entire section titled "LU Factorization"
