Hi,

I would love to do this for my semester project this semester, along with a friend, so can you assign it to me?

Thanks,
Eklavya

Currently, getting the reader mode to work on firefox desktop.

Update so far:
Identified that indexedDB isnt working, silently failing with an unknow exception as described here : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=643318 [disabling caching for the time-being.]

Also, identified some problems with the existing WIP reader-mode patch at : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=558882
It does not work in windows due to some missing entries in source/browser/themes/winstripe/jar.mn under the aero section. [Fixed it. Reader mode icon now shows on url bar, and the about:reader page shows the reader mode toolbar.]

Reader mode on desktop firefox is now working under windows. Tested on Windows Server 2012

@mbrubeck I assumed Firefox Metro was dropped, I am correct ?

@AntoineTurmel That's correct; Metro Firefox is no longer actively in development and we are not planning to ship it as part of Firefox (though the code is still open source for anyone who wants to build or modify it themselves). Closing this issue.
