feedly.com - Essential keyboard shortcuts no longer works

Post by lysing » 2020-09-16, 14:58

Until yesterday evening, Feedly has worked perfectly with Pale Moon (v. 28.13.0 for Linux), but now it's no longer possible to use the keyboard shortcuts "j" (next article) and "k" (previous article) on feedly.com, regardless of running in safe mode or not.
(It's possible some other shortcuts are affected, but I never use them and haven't tried...)

Attached image shows the errors. I don't know if the first five are "new" from yesterday, or if they are relevant for the issue. The "ReferenceError: event is not defined" is thrown when "j" or "k" is pressed.

With Firefox, Feedly works like it should, with no error messages at all. In my opinion, the "j" and "k" shortcuts are essential for efficient reading, so for now I reluctantly use Firefox...

They likely changed something on the site to use something bizzarre instead of keeping the already functioning code.
Try shooting them a message saying that shortcuts don't work on Pale Moon.
If they reply "use Chrome", ask them explicitly what Pale Moon needs to make the site works.
If they don't reply or reply with some vague statements, it means that they don't know either.

Probably this is because of global event implementation missing in Pale Moon.

Thanks to you both!
I'll pass this information to Feedly. Hopefully they're willing to fix it...

It should be a trivial fix.

Wow. I'm honestly surprised that they addressed it. Most websites would refuse to bother!

Good to hear, and good on feedly.com!

I guess you're used to dealing with websites that only care about quantity and not quality.
Many webmasters would "bother" to respond to genuine website bugs that have a clear cause and easy solution. So, don't be so surprised ;) it's usually only the "big" guys that aren't worth their weight that don't care losing visitors.

Guess we are lucky some sites still HAVE a real webmaster.
