View Full Version : Safari Reader Mode Bug?

Sep 21, 2013, 08:03 AM
This is a potential bug that was present in the later Betas and now the public release.

It's happened to me on a few websites where you click the Reader button and it opens a completely different webpage to that you were reading.

As an example, this webpage sports story;

Selected test news story example (http://metro.co.uk/2013/09/21/marouane-fellaini-cristiano-ronaldo-made-a-mistake-not-rejoining-manchester-united-4061581/?)

Is changing to this story for me when I enter Reader mode;

Story shown when Reader mode engaged (http://metro.co.uk/2013/09/21/christian-benteke-set-for-spell-on-sidelines-after-groin-injury-against-norwich-4061667/)

Could someone else please try this for me?

Just click on the original link and then select Reader mode and confirm that it changes to a different webpage.


Oh I'm on a 4S with iOS 7 GM browsing in Private Mode.

EDIT: it's even worse than I thought as it appears to be changing to random webpages. I closed the page and reopened it with the forum link above and it then changed to a story about boxer David Haye.

The first time i checked it out it took me to the right story. 2nd time it took me to "David Haye ‘devastated’ after cut forces him to postpone Tyson Fury fight" and then i got the correct one again. Now i keep on getting the david haye one. Weird.

The second link goes to a different story too.

Oh and i'm on an ipad 3 running ios7.

Thank you very much for checking. Seems there may be a slight issue with Reader mode then on some websites after all.

Hopefully a few more forum members could try the links and we can prove this definitively.
