Hi, I've just noticed the "lots of new keyboard shortcuts" feature, and hit ? to have a look. The keyboard shortcuts page says Shift+J will move to the next feed with unread items. It doesn't seem to work. I've nuked the cache and still no joy.

This is in Chrome btw.

Thanks.

Could you please double check what shift + J is suposed to do?

Whenever I hit ? it tells me shift + J is equal to shift + ↓. And should bring me to the next site. And this is what it does for me.

I checked the source code on GitHub and that is no different: shift + J brings you to the next site.

OK, slight error in my original post - Shift J isn't "next feed with unread" it's literally "next feed". It still does not work in my browser.

A couple of other observations:

If I slide the importance slider to yellow, the first time I press shift J is get the first feed in my list. Subsequent presses don't do anything. I can also lock the browser up pretty quickly by repeat pressing it.

If the slider is on green, it never does anything, but I can't lock the browser.

Ah ha! It's to do with having feeds in groups, and having groups collapsed.

All my feeds are in groups, bar one. That single feed is a "yellow" feed.

If I slide the slider to yellow, and expand my first group of feeds, Shift+J will cheerfully toggle between all three feeds.

If I collapse the group and try again, I can hang the browser.

In green mode, I have no stand alone feeds, so shift+J does nothing.

Also, it's not like it _appears_ to do nothing (in that I can't see it changing feeds because they're collapsed and not visible) because the list of visible articles doesn't change.

I'd like SHIFT+J to skip between collapsed groups, if that's possible, but maybe that's an unreasonable expectation. At least we now know what's going on.
