Firefox beta crashes in reader mode

I have used Firefox beta on a Samsung galaxy note 2. It's fine except that on some sites I see a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark to the left of the address bar. If I then click on the right square to view text

in reader mode the app crashes. This doesn't happen if I do the same in ordinary Firefox app. I have just deleted the beta version and will use Firefox stable for now as I need the Reader plug in which works in basic app.

Thank you for the helpful information. As I had already deleted Firefox Beta, I reinstalled it to try to recreate the problem. Strangely, there's no yellow triangle on the problem sites and reader mode works fine now. Perhaps the clean reinstall solved the problem as I had accepted a lot of updates to the original installation. I don't know if having both Beta and Stable versions installed has had any effect. Anyway, the annoying crashing problem seems to have solved itself for now. Thank you.
