            - The left column should not be fixed, you should be able to move the column to see the labels properly.

            - Most of the items that have videos included these are not directly visible, like google reader and other readers.

            • Scrolling is broken in the feed/folder list when navigating using keyboard

              e.g., When scrolling down using shift-p, the folder/feed cursor will move past the bottom edge of the screen without scrolling. There are other aspects of shift-p/shift-n navigation which seem borked and need way more testing. Someone with a list of folders and embedded feeds longer than the screen needs to be testing the software.

                  • Please make AOL Reader render in Chrome

                    I am unable to get AOL Reader to open in Chrome. I just get a blank page. This happens on Windows 7 and OSX.

                      • The read/unread icon is gone, bring it back

                        Yesterday there was a icon next to the fav-star indicating if the feed was read or not. ¿Why has it gone?

                        • Add an actively maintained AOL Reader Beta blog

                          The UserVoice feedback section is a good first step. But a running Beta blog, actively maintained, would be a more effective way for users to stay in touch with the progress of AOL Reader.

                          • Mark only the displayed articles as read when you "Mark all as read".

                            When you press "Mark all as read", all the articles in the folder get marked "read". But often there comes new ariticles before you get to the end of a folder when you have a long list of feeds. In this case, the newest articles I didn't check get marked "read" when I press "Mark all as read".

                            I'd like to avoid this problem. Please mark only the displayed articles, not the articles that came after you displayed the list just as Google Reader used to do.

                            It's really important because you can miss some articles by this problem.

                            • Evernote, Diigo, Zootool & Co

                              Great work, folks! Already looks like what I was searching for after the end of Google Reader.

                              It would be great to get a "Send to" option to send articles to tools like Evernote, Diigo, Zootool, or to integrate that under the sharing options.

                                • Images are distorted

                                  Images that are wider than 560 pixels appear distorted, because they are made to fit in the article area's width.

                                  Even though the image's true width is correctly identified and accounted for in the IMG tag, the image is laterally compressed.

                                  A narrow width for text is nice, but images should bleed over the text area.

                                  Attached are an screenshot of the distorted image on the Aol Reader and the image file as it should appear.

                                    • [BUG?] In folders, all feeds are written in bold font if one feed has unread entrie(s)

                                      When a feeds contains unread post(s), it's title is written in bold font in the left pane. The problem occurs when you have a feed that contains unread entries : all the feeds of the folder are written in bold, even the ones that are fully read.

                                      • Recommended feeds aren't clickable

                                        Clicking on the + next to a recommended feed does nothing.

                                        • do not autoload pages automatically

                                          Currently in mobile-version of service user have to open each news to mark it as read.
                                          In real life user can read only titles, mark some news as "unread" for future reading. And in the end of list:
                                          - or press mark all displayed items as "read" (except marked as "unread");
                                          - or press "load more".
