The 'Mark all as read' button doesn't seem to work properly any more.

Steps to repeat:
Open any thread with more than one unread story, (which view you’re in, or which order doesn’t matter).
Press ‘Mark all as read’

Expected - that all of the unread stories are marked as read.
Actual - Nothing

If you double click on the button, it does actually mark everything as read, but it also opens the homepage of the story (in a new tab).

To clarify, this is the ‘Mark all as read’ button that appears when you hover over the area that is above the list of stories (below the reading pane on the right side). I’ve seen this in FF 15 as well.

In the meantime, I’ve been using the keyboard shortcut Shift+A or using the ‘Mark as read’ item in the menu (from clicking the triangle to the left of the feed name).

I’ve been experiencing the same issue on my touchpad…figured it was just due to the quirkiness of the platform. I’ve confirmed the same behavior in chrome 21.0.1180.83 on win 7 x64.

I’m having the same problem. Haven’t posted because I assumed everyone was going to run into it and it would be fixed quickly. I’m on Firefox 15.

Whew, fixed that. Sorry about the lapse. It happened because I fixed right-clicking, in the process breaking the mark as read button. You can also use shift+a to mark as read (as well as the menus).
