      • AOL Reader is very sluggish

        AOL Reader is very sluggish, slow loading articles.

        • Please fix: Every day, read items that are 30 days old reappear is new in the feed.

          Every day, starting around 4 PM PST (or 5 PM PDT), read news items that are exactly 30 days old will reappear in my feed. They can be marked as read again and will disappear, or after about an hour, they seem to get automatically marked as read and disappear from my feed. Originally, these items wouldn't be counted in the unread count, however that changed recently and now show up in the unread article count, which also gets fixed after about an hour when those items disappear (if not manually marked as read).

          • Unread count issue

            I can still access everything by sequentially going through "All" but can't access most of my feeds directly or tell if they have unread item in them.

            • Bug: Some feeds don't update at all

              Some of the feeds don't update at all. When I add them to The Old Reader or Feedly, I see the updates, but not in AOL Reader.

              All of the examples below are Yahoo Pipes feeds, so this problem may be limited to Pipes feeds, but I suspect there are others. I'll add them in comments if I find out.

              Example feeds:
              http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=a3e8be7343afe67e78440e8df27f911f&_render=rss

              • sign in button doesn't work in Windows Phone 8 browser

                been using AOL Reader on WP8 successfully until about 3 weeks ago, since when I've been unable to log in - the sign in button doesn't do anything, same with the gadget button in the top right of the page... also works fine in chrome and IE on the desktop, but not in firefox

                • In some folders, I have multiple times the same posts, in other folders, only 9 posts are showing... and the auto-loading does not work.

                  I have to click on the folder or the refresh button to get another 9 posts... rinse and repeat.

                    • System is much slower since update.

                      I have observed that the AOL Reader system is much slower with these new upgrades. Refreshing the subscription list to view new article count takes at least 3 times as long as it used to, Even with that, the article count doesn't always show up correctly, or at all.

                      • AOL Reader Isn't Retrieving Articles

                        Currently, it doesn't appear as if AOL Reader is retrieving articles. Earlier this morning, I was frequently getting a red error message, 'Unable to Retrieve articles'.

                            • My Idea Is ...

                              9 out of 10 times I can't save an article to Pocket. It doesn't show any confirmation for the next ~20 secs or so, and then a red banner say. Also sometimes only by clicking on the title of an article in AOL Reader will an article in The Verge open properly. In contrast, the link does not open properly when clicking the "Continue Reading" link in the snippet of the article in AOL Reader. Thank you very much.

                                This morning, I am unable to open AOL Reader. I tried opening the reader on two browsers with the same results.

                                  • starred items not scrolling

                                    Starred items no longer scroll down to reveal more starred items (forever scroll / infinite scroll).
                                    All the other feeds seem to update dynamically just fine as you scroll down to the bottom and add more items in as you scroll.
                                    A few days ago i noticed that this behaviour was no longer working for my starred items (i have a big list). Once you scroll to the bottom, the page becomes blank. Judging from the network activity monitor in Chrome developer tools, it would seem no request is even made to the server. This bug is repeatable in *all*…

                                      The login page just reloads when I click the Login button. Is there a setting in Chrome that needs to be changed?
