Component: Untriaged → Reader Mode
Product: Firefox → Toolkit

This works for me, fwiw, when testing in private browsing on 106 beta. Can you still reproduce? Can you reproduce on a clean profile?

This works for me, fwiw, when testing in private browsing on 106 beta. Can you still reproduce? Can you reproduce on a clean profile?

Ouch, hmm... I test on private tabs, and it's working.. hah.... seems the rendered HTML without login and logged is different for some reason (logged in?)... Could I do more check, or is there a guide to check how to trigger the reader mode in order to work?

But visually, without login, it's cleaner like pure article, I think that's why reader mode is invoked..

I think the issue is that the page loads the article-like content dynamically, after the page loads and initially paints, and so when the check runs to determine whether to show the reader mode button, there isn't an article there to be detected.

You can work around this by prefixing about:reader?url= to the URL in the address bar and hitting enter (or using an add-on that always allows you to enter reader mode).
