Quickly documenting some different behaviors when reading articles on the Washington Post:
1. Firefox 42.0a2, Tracking Protection turned on: article obscured, "To keep reading, please enter your e-mail address."
2. Firefox 42.0a2, Tracking Protection turned on, private browsing mode: article obscured, "Your ad blocker is on."
