  1. Exiting full screen video resets scroll to top of the feed in Chrome on Mac

    If I watch an embedded flash video from a feed, the feed resets to the 1st item after exiting full screen. For example, if I watch a video from the 10th item in a feed, I'll be back at the 1st item when exiting full screen. This is in Chrome on Mac OS X.

      • General bugginess

        Using Chrome on a Mac - not sure if there's been an update in the last 24 hours or so? Having repeated issues tonight with sizing (full size, individual frames take over the whole screen, etc.) and also an issue picking a feed and having all its stories unexpectedly marked as read. Seems all around less stable than normal.

          • Reader Crashes Chrome on Mac

            Using Yosemite and the latest Chrome, after login Reader crashes the tab. Refreshing displays the web page, but Chrome will hang when trying to quit. This has been happening for some time, so it's not just the latest Chrome version.

                • "Moved Permanently" error on Feedburner feeds

                  As of 5/9/2015 it seems (some, maybe all) items in feeds coming from Feedburner, when clicked, result in a "Moved Permanently The document has moved here. " message.

                    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

                      • AOL Reader seemingly stopped recognizing previously working website feeds.

                        Two website feeds that previously worked no longer show new stories. I've deleted the feeds and again added the urls, but no new stories show up. Also, I've tried to add another site that has the domain ".today" but this shows up as "Fake" and contains no stories.

                        • 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*…

                                I am using Maxthon v. 4.4.3.4000 (last version) on my laptop and I discovered that I am not able to manually sort feeds (drag&drop) in the navigation column. The issue only occurs with maxthon, other browsers are fine (i.e. Chrome and Firefox).

                                          Today on first page "menu" and "login" buttons doesn't work.
                                          OS: Windows Phone 8.1.1 Development preview
                                          Browser: Internet explorer
