Firefox Quantum Reader View

Do you sometimes struggle to get through a very long post?

Well, FF 57.0 and up have "Reader View" and converts the entire page to only TEXT and what is inside the post itself.

Look up on the Task Bar and there is a small icon to the right of the URL/Search area.

Mouse over that, and click on it.
I normally read the forum at 140% because it is sooo much easier to read, you can change the % text size with Control-+ or Control-Mouse Wheel.

Here is an example of how it looks.

Firefox 57 and up you say?
Strange that I'm using Firefox 52.5 and have had "Reader View" for quite some time.
I'm not sure when it first showed up.

maybe the icon did not get my attention until I started exploring all of the features introduced with Quantum

regardless of when it appeared, it sure is a nice feature.

Because I use Copy Paste a lot, and Reader View makes it a lot easier to do the things I like.

That won't help the single paragraph 2,000 sentence diatribes we get here sometimes.
I wish there was a way to do indents. Not that anybody would use them.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Indent:
This is an indented paragraph. Which I quite often use to make sure something is more visible.


But, I think you really meant to indent the first line of each paragraph like Word does.

............ when I need to do that, I just use a series of periods like this.....
and that separates the text a bit....

I also use blank lines a lot,
and some times, I center the

Text to make something stand out better.


The editor can do a lot, BUT, if you are using an Android or iOS device, you are screwed, it just all runs together as one run on sentence, and that is why a lot of posts are a mess.


IF, a tech post has some very good content, I will go in and edit it to make it more readable...

On some post a few periods, spaces, and a capital letter thrown in every now and then would help.
