Environment: Asus Transformer (Android 4.2.1) and Nexus 7 (Android 4.4.2)
Build: 31.0a1 (2014-04-16)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make sure Google is the default search engine.
2. Perform a search from the awesome bar.
3. Tap on the reader mode icon.

Expected result:
The page looks good in reader mode.

Actual result:
The page does not look properly, code is displayed instead of links.

Notes: This is a similar issue to what is described in Bug 888918
I don't think Google search results should even be detected as applicable for reader-mode.
Component: Reader Mode → Readability
Oh this is desktop/tablet search results *only*
Summary: Google search pages does not look properly in reader mode → Google (desktop) are detected as Reader Mode capable

Summary: Google (desktop) are detected as Reader Mode capable → Google search results displayed as JSON blobs in reader mode
It seems to no longer do this, but instead just redirect back to the page itself (ie reader mode fails). Which is both a good and a bad thing, I guess...?
I no longer get a reader view button on these pages.
