Now the behavior is different. When looking at your comment, the second “Suggested Topic” is “Editor lag on OSX 10.10.2 B1”. I use
j to navigate to it, and I hit Return.
I notice that the URL briefly changes to mention a topic number other than 13565 (which is the id of the topic I’m replying to), but the page shows an error message that it can’t display the requested article, and then it bounces back to this topic. (It goes up one comment, though, so I end up on my earlier comment of 6d ago.)
Let me see if I can capture the error message.
Update: The error message was: “Sorry, we couldn’t load that topic, possibly due to a connection problem. Please try again. If the problem persists, let us know.”
So, it happened 3 times in the last few minutes, I don’t know whether that counts as “persisting”. I’ll test another suggested article, too. Stay tuned…
Update 2: I’ve now tried all five suggested topics, with the same result. (The only variable was the comment to the topic that I ended up on after the redirection.)
Update 3: I’ve visually inspected the target URL after hitting Return, and it equaled the URL that Firefox showed me on hovering the Suggested Articles entry.
