I’m disappointed

Extension doesn't work in Google Reader

FF extension doesn't seem to work wih Google Reader. Whenever I click an icon - it says it can't identify which item is currently selected. And clicking on a story doesn't help.
Right-click on the link and selecting "Send to LL" works, but with alert pop-up.

    I'm sorry about that -- unfortunately, I couldn't reproduce the problem on multiple machines until now.

    Could you give me a few more details on: 1) which browser you're using and 2) which feed you're having trouble with (or feed view, such as a tag/folder). In order for the detection to work, the Google Reader item has to have a blue border border around it (that shows that it's the current selection, but I'm sure that's the case)

    There's no particular feed that LL doesn't work with. I always use "All Items" view.
    GReader indeed shows blue border on active feed.
    I tried disabling Better GReader addon but it didn't helped.

    I could try something else if you have any ideas what to try.

    Thank you.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to put together this list. I haven't been able to spot an obvious culprit or cause for the problem -- I suspect that another extension is modifying the HTML/DOM of the Google Reader page such that LaterLoop doesn't recgonize it anymore.

    Specifically, LL looks for an element with the ID "current-entry", which should contain an [h2] heading and at least 1 link with the CSS class name "entry-original" -- maybe that can help us figure out the problem.

    Maybe it's another Greasemonkey script? Have you tried disabling Greasemonkey temporarily?

  • I’m like "wtf?!" :)
    OK, so I disabled Greasemonkey (addon), Stylish, all my Better whatever addons - and it still won't work! I don't get it :)
    And this is what goes into error console on Ctrl+Space:

    Error: [Exception... "'JavaScript component does not have a method named: "handleEvent"' when calling method: [nsIDOMEventListener::handleEvent]" nsresult: "0x80570030 (NS_ERROR_XPC_JSOBJECT_HAS_NO_FUNCTION_NAMED)" location: "" data: no]

    I don't know if this helps, just in case.
