Firefox reader view only renders half the article

Dear volunteers,

I am on Debian 11, Firefox 98.0.1.

Firefox reader mode only seems to render half the article I am currently on, example:

https://www.newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/the-purges-in-putins-shrinking-inner-circle

The reader view only renders up to "I think it’s a big challenge for them." but the actual article continues.

Is this a bug on my setup?

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Reader view only displays text on a web page for containers that meet conditions like a specific layout. There is a minimum character count for containing elements that show in Reading mode, so you may not see all the text if the page isn't designed to be used with Firefox reader mode.

A bug just for 1 site... I turned on the option in Chrome and it works for this site, but on another site reader view works fine in Firefox. see screenshots Someone more Dev savvy will have to chime in, but I blame the site on this one. Just my opinion...

Thank you for your input, it could well be just this one site, on other sites Firefox reader view worked just fine for me. I don't know if comparing with Chrome is useful here, I will keep checking. Thanks for taking the time to reply!
