  1. Problem with umlaut

    Very recently any RSS feed in reader.aol.com has problems with german umlaut charecters.

    instead of ä I see ä
    instead of ö I see ö
    instead of ü I see ü
    Also ß is shown wrongly as ß

    The problem occurs only with Chrome 44
    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/44.0.2403.52 Safari/537.36

    Firefox Developer Edition 40.0a2 does show umlauts correctly.
    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:40.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/40.0

    Running OSX 10.11 Beta2, System language is US english

    From within Chrome console, executing document.charset; does return "UTF-8".

    • Manually organize feeds (alternatives to alphabetical order)

      I would like to be able to manually organize feeds and put them in the priority order that I prefer rather than alphabetical order. If this feature already exists I did not see it in the interface and I will additionally request that the interface make this option more obvious.

          • Do not change.

            I absolutely love AOL reader in it's current form. The only thing i could gripe a little about is the usage of non-standard webfonts that causes framebuffer based webbrowsers to display the icons totally intelligible. Perhaps there could be a separate version that uses regular fonts and pictures for the icons.

                  • memory

                    In Chrome, the reader takes up a ton of memory and won't release it even after a refresh. The tab can take up to 1.2GB of memory. Only option is to close the tab and open a new tab.

                    • Desktop version new toolbar/menu pop-down is irritating.

                      desktop version new toolbar/menu pop-down is irritating because there isn't enough margin for the view menu it pops down over. Perhaps adding a few mm of margin or reducing the sensitivity will keep the bar from dropping down when I'm actually trying to simply mark all items read.

                                Can you provide a feature to read contents or feeds offline?

                                Since in some cases no internet, I still would like to read some updates from reader. And when internet comes back, I can sync the progress, like kindle app.
