READER VIEW icon is missing from the toolbar, and ENTER READER MODE is missing from the VIEW menu, even on sites/pages where it is enabled on my other computer. Firefox version 104.02

Hi Rob

What is the address of the website that you are trying to view in Reader mode?

It may be the case that the page does not have sufficient text to trigger Reader mode. I have tried on other pages and the icon does still appear.

Hi Paul, The Reader View icon is non existent on any site; Yahoo Finance, Fox News, CNN News, NBC News, etc. I've had this compuiter for 5 months and it has never appeared on the Toolbar or the View menu.
