Is there a documentation about reading mode in firefox ?

I'm looking for a developper guide for adapting a website to the read mode in firefox : it's mostly problem about : - page title for which i would like to be able to define a shorter (less SEO) title - "display none" content who should be available in reading mode

I don't think there is any good documentation.

I suspect it is a mix of under-development [WiP], experimental, and potentially being deprecated in favour of Pocket, at least in some locales|builds. Note the feature differs on Android & there may be an increasing number of users on Android.

I don't think there is any proper developer guide but there are a variety of places to look for information, some may appear at a later date :

You would be better asking in the developers forum. If you do so please post back here to cross link the developers answers

There may be a better forum to use but ask over there.
