    • something wrong with back button

      On page with feed details back button sometimes hard clickable. Especially after scrolling.
      May be littler shifted clickable area, but you do not highlight clickable area, in result I can't detect the problem more concretely.

      thank you.

        • Show stars in a feed's list view

          I would like to see whether an item is starred when I view the feed's list view. Kind of like items are currently displayed if you view "all" feeds rather than a single one.

          • When using j or n to scroll through items it marks them as read.

            It didn't do that yesterday. If it is a new feature do it for just one of the keys or optional in the settings. I use the n/p key to get a quick overview of the items in a feed and don't want to necessarily mark them as read.

            • On computer with touchscreen (ex:yoga 13) mouse/touchpad click does not work any more

              If you have a computer with a touchscreen, all click are just ignored. you can browse the interface with the touch feature
              but if you use the legacy old things like the mouse or touchpad, it's like nothing happend.

              This is very frustrating as it is new and was not like that about one month ago.

                    • Nexus 10: Rapidly swiping articles to the left doesn't work most of the time

                      Swiping articles to the left to move to the next article doesn't work about 90% of the time on my Nexus 10, especially when done rapidly.

                        • Mail option is not working!

                          Mail options is not working since yesterday's (8/27/13) updates.

                          It is opening weibo instead to share, which is the last option in the sharing drop down list.

                          Some mixup I believe with the share option.

                          • Front-end performance: Firefox becomes unbearably slow when navigating through hundreds of feed items

                            I have got an high end computer and I’m using the latest version of Firefox (Win 7) but navigating through hundreds of feed items (via “j” keyboard shortcut) makes Firefox unbearably slow and unresponsive. There is 1-2 second delay between clicking the right mouse button and opening the context menu (I’m used to opening links in background tabs: right click -> open link in new tab).

                            Please investigate it and make your front-end performance better.

                            Google reader did not have such impact on browser’s performance.

                            • Clicking on anything in Reader in Win 8 x64 in Chrome does nothing.

                              I was actually able to get it to respond to clicks via touch on my win 8 tablet pc, but no mouse input. same with my desktop. the keyboard shortcuts seem to work though. It took forever to get the site to even load on both machines and once it did all mouse inputs were not being recognized.

                              • Link to article (post)

                                In my rss subscriptions I often cant find link to the actual page, article. Seems it happens when the post doesn't have any title. So maybe you should do like on facebook, where the publish date also is link to separate post. Or something like this. Thank you.

                                      Hi,

                                      Are you still experiencing this issue? If so can you give us more information, such as what browser/version you are using, or anything else you might do to experience the problem?

                                      Thanks,
                                      The AOL Reader Team

                                      After the latest update, the formatting of my subscription titles started breaking up words into different lines. (See attached screenshot.)

                                      • Only right 10-30% of the post is visible

                                        I've had this happen with 2 feeds since the new Reader update. The feed will load, but it looks that something with the style sheet shifts the post over to the left so that only 10-30% of the feed can be read. See screenshot.

                                        Additionally - When this happens, "Mark all as read" does not work.

                                        • This post broke AOL Reader

                                          This post caused AOL Reader to become unresponsive. The post contents expanded to a size greater than the reading window, and after it loaded I couldn't switch to another feed or use the "mark all as read" button. This happened on two separate machines, one using IE 11 and one using the latest Google Chrome beta.
