When viewing google reader on ipad where slashdot feed is one of many others, e.g. All items, the comments don't load properly.
Comments from the first item loaded appear on all subsequent items from slashdot as well as appearing in items from a different feed.

    Uploaded 3 screenshot:
    reader-mobilesafari.png - A Google blog item showing a Slashdot comment box from the first Slashdot item viewed since browser refresh.
    reader2-mobilesafari.png - A Slashdot item showing the same comment box from before.
    reader-firefox.png - The expected result when viewing the google blog item, showing the html layout in firebug.

     
  • I confirm this bug, but with "classic" google reader (e.g. with firefox on a PC)

    The way comments were displayed has now changed and seems to work when the browser has entered Google Reader in a normal way.
    Sometimes Mobile Safari refreshes the page when switching back to the browser from task switching. This seems to cause the comment box to fail loading. It happens rarely and unpredictably, but I've encountered it since changes were made to the feed.

     
  • I can't say it's working in google reader: you have to click on name of a user (click on comment's text is not allowed, but hovering shows typical cursor hand) and you get the whole slashdot page with comments. OK, you can read comments, but it's not definitely user friendly.
