Shortcut opens top article instead of selected article

Same issue as others reported recently, but hitting the shortcut no longer opens the selected article as a background tab. It instead opens the first article in the list in a background tab.

Not working for a while

I think for about a week this hasn't been working properly. When pressing ";" on any of the articles it will always open the "top" article instead of the "currently selected" article. I suspect Feedly changed something but this will need to be updated to fix

Functionality Broke as of 1/12/21

I swear by this extension, and as of yesterday, it has been broken. I expect that a change by Feedly is the issue, but I am not any sort of software developer to help.

Recent update means I can't open links from Title-only view; articles need to be opened for extension to work.

Hi, not sure whether this is my side or Feedly side but for the last day or so, using your extension to attempt to open articles from keyboard navigation in the Title-only view doesn't work; I first need to Open the article (o) then launch the URL (;) with your extension. This used to work. The Javascript console in Chrome tells me this is happening when I try it from closed articles:

Could not find any selectors from: div.selectedEntry a.title,.selectedEntry a.visitWebsiteButton,.list-entries .selected a.visitWebsiteButton,a.visitWebsiteButton,.entry.selected a.title

No longer works

I'm not quite sure what has changed. I've been using your great extension for years (as I'm a Feedly\RSS junkie) but suddenly it's stopped working. I just updated Chrome, and it worked once, and then stopped, so it's a very odd issue. I'm on Chrome version: 73.0.3683.86 (Official Build) (64-bit). It might just be me, but I can't seem to work out why.

Causing reload of feedly page when used

Using Version 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit) on Windows 10. When I use the extension, it opens the link in a background tab, but the feedly main page full-reloads.

Open all unread items?

This works well but could there be another key to open ALL unread items in background tabs instead of having to go through them one by one?

Open in background by default?

Is there a way to add an option to just open tabs in the background by default? This is what I always do, without fail so it'd help myself (and I'm sure at least some others) out
