When clicking the "Mark as read" button, the list view
feed items show all items as read but the newspaper
view still shows items as unread. Futhermore,
toggling the read envelope shows shows the reverse
status appearing in the list view.

REPRO:

  1. Click on on a feed with unread items in the Feed
    Subscriptions pane
  2. Click on the "Mark as read" button.

EXPECTED: Both list and newspaper views show all items
as unread.

RESULT: Only list view shows items as unread.
Newspaper view show items as unread. Clicking on the
read staus envelope shows the wrong status being
displayed in the list view.

For larger feeds I like to read in two passes. I mark
all as read then untoggle interesting items for the
second pass. I can't use the Newspaper view to do this
due to this bug.

    This is by design. It's non-trivial to ensure that changes
    that happen outside the embedded web browser are somehow
    communicated back to it. We decided not to do this work
    since most people will not require this functionality.
