Details

(Whiteboard: [reader-mode-readability-algorithm])

1) Open Firefox
2) Go to http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/08/28/playing-games-for-all-the-wrong-reasons or other IGN article featuring large quotes
3) Click the reader mode icon to enter reader mode

Expected: The about:reader text does not contain the large quoted elements as they repeat text in the article for emphasis.
Actual: The about:reader text does contain the quoted elements, awkwardly. It will look similar to the following:

---
"

[LARGE QUOTE BLOCK HERE]

[PARAGRAPH FROM WHICH QUOTE BLOCK IS TAKEN]
---

The " by itself is intended.
Priority: -- → P3
Component: Reader View → Reader Mode
Product: Firefox for Android → Toolkit
Version: Firefox 18 → unspecified
Doesn't look like IGN uses this layout anymore.

But it appears the legacy link still works the same way.

I wonder if this a strange edge case we really don't have control over though.
