Is this a regression from bug 1667145?

Maybe, but it's unclear why that would have caused this issue, and it's now a 9-month old regression, and that change fixed other issues, so backing out isn't really an option. It's quite possible the source markup is different after moving in and out of reader mode... this would need someone to investigate further.
