Feature request: Firefox Reading mode support

Issue #17 resolved
moshpirit created an issue

Firefox has a pretty nice reading mode which modifies the URL, so you can read the content but you cannot add it to Pocket. Would be a way to convert the link if it starts by "about:reader"?


https://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/wine-how-much-is-good-for-you#1 gets converted into about:reader?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.webmd.com%2Ffood-recipes%2Ffeatures%2Fwine-how-much-is-good-for-you%231#1

    Hi and thanks for the suggestion.

    Thanks for the information as well: on my Firefox, the about:reader?url= prefix is not visible in the address bar, and I was really wondering how this worked behind the scenes. I guess I could work something out, to make the firefox reader and regular page "the same".

    If I understand correctly, you'd like to display a page in reader mode, and be able to add it to your pocket (ie. this would certainly be the original url, not the about:reader one), which currently results in an error.
