Description

Firefox has an add-on called Active Reader View. It partially works on Tor. I can get the reader to come up and show two elements on the left hand side tool bar: Close, and Control (font), then it re-directs back to the original article in Pocket. I searched about this and saw a bunch of developer pages about this and that, but I was confused.

Is this supported? If so, how can I get my Tor browser to read (auditorily) to me?

Thanks,
Rick.

So, this works in a normal Firefox 45 but not in Tor Browser? The only thing we changed regarding Reader View is in #18950 (see: https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/gk/tor-browser.git/commit/?h=bug_18950). Does flipping those prefs help?

There's the Activate Reader View addon and I don't see it working differently in Tor Browser compared to Firefox.
