NewsBlur works just fine for a few minutes and then suddenly freezes when I click on a feed in the left sidebar. Usually, the only way out of this is closing the tab and reloading NewsBlur again.
I am using Google Chrome (17.0.963.6 dev) on Lubuntu 11.10.
It’s highly possible that this is because the feed is opening in the Original view. I really need to create an easy way to switch a feed to the Feed view without opening it up. I’ll do that today, hopefully, and add it to the Feed Settings dialog.
Just in case it helps, I have set my preferences to open all sites in the ‘Feed’ view by default, and I have not overridden this setting for any site.
