Sorry, but I don't see it unless I'm not understanding the problem properly ???

Turning on WebRep causes Google Reader to not format its lists correctly in Chrome on Win 7

Same problem here. Removing WebRep fixes the problem.

I'm on XP SP3, Avast 6.0.1367 and Chrome 17.0.953.56

Today my Avast upgraded to 7 and it looks like this problem is fixed now.

My current WebRep version is 6.0.1407 and Chrome is unchanged from my previous message at 17.0.953.56.

Same problem. I'm running Chrome 17.0.963.56 m and Avast 7.0.1407. My reader is configured in spanish, changing to english solves the problem??. I already unactivate WebRep however I don't feel safe doing that :S. It is supposed to tell me if I'm going to a dangerous site, doesn't it?

Hola Javier,

Same problem. I'm running Chrome 17.0.963.56 m and Avast 7.0.1407. My reader is configured in spanish, changing to english solves the problem??. I already unactivate WebRep however I don't feel safe doing that :S. It is supposed to tell me if I'm going to a dangerous site, doesn't it?

No, I tried setting my reader in English and Spanish it now works right in both settings.

What's your WebRep version (spanner > Tools > Extensions)? My Chrome and Avast versions are the same as yours. My WebRep version is 6.0.1407.

It's my understanding that preventing you from entering dangerous sites is in the virus scanner, not on WebRep. WebRep only tells you the opinion of other people about a site, so disabling it won't put you in danger.

OK, as a follow up, is anyone at Avast working to solve this issue with Google Reader in Chrome and webrep or no?

I still don't know what problem you're talking about ???







As you can see, Google Reader works fine and avast!WebRep is active.

Bob, the problem is when you have feeds in Google Reader and clicking on the category that expands those feeds. With webrep installed in Google Chrome, the expanded feeds appear "hidden". Uninstalling the webrep fixes that issue. I hope I explained the core of the issue :)

? ... Yes, I'm sure I want to post in this topic. (as, in my view, making a new topic is obviously not going to make a difference here.) *yawn*

Right. Problem still there ... of course.

- Current date: 1 Juni 2012 (or see message post date.)
- Google: 20.0.1132.21 beta-m (using default theme.)
- Avast! WebRep: 7.0.1426 (enabled)

- With Google Reader is "LIST MODE", and not in EXPANDED MODE"


Seems bob3160 don't knows there is a "list view" mode in Google Reader ... as he keeps posting "Working for me" screens with Google Reader in "Expanded view" mode. ... Wile the word "list" was actually used in the original post.

- Just in case ... (No ... just switching modes will probably not show the problem either. You have to try a little harder. Like switching reader subscription after switching to List mode. If that fails ... A full Google reader reload would be nice.)

MvGulik.
(Not in good mood as avast seems to be involved in some corruption of my Google Chrome profile ... for a second time.)

Reproduction Steps:

1. Log into the Google Reader site with Chrome.


2. Select a sub-folder that contains RSS feeds.




3. After selecting the folder, select "list view". Upper right near the "settings" gear.



4. The content for the folder in "list view" will display as follows.

Just installed the trial for Avast Internet Security on four different machines thinking I might buy five licenses and move to Avast, and despite being reported on these forums back in December, this problem STILL exists. Very worrisome that nobody from Avast has even commented or acknowledged this problem......makes me very wary of switching to Avast. Using the latest version of Avast and Chrome, FWIW.
