Minified, but pretty printed for easier debugging without source maps. The whitespace gzips pretty well.

We're looking into this. Trying to find our android test device :-/

Wow thanks for the reply. I noticed it mainly (possibly exclusively) occurs when the navbar comes into view, or goes out of view (so scroll up, release,then scroll down). It gets annoying because the nav bar reappears if you switch tabs, or leave chrome and come back later.

-----


We're actually having a hard time reproducing (though we've received some interesting screen shots). Our nexus 4 and Nexus 7 look ok. Rest assured we'll be acquiring more devices and will try and fix.

-----


Should be fixed on monday. Was a super weird rendering bug.

-----


This is a surprisingly accurate assessment from someone outside the company: http://www.quora.com/Medium-website/What-is-Mediums-technolo...

But it would be good if we documented this more formally. I'll see if someone wants to write a post.

-----


This was a mistake introduced by a last minute change. We'll have a fix deployed soon.

-----


We have a fix for Chrome coming soon, something we overlooked in a last minute change.

-----


The fix was deployed. Happy keyboard scrolling.

This is likely related to typekit loading. Do you block referrers?

-----


I'm seeing the same thing and do block referrers

-----


Typekit understandably wants to make sure that no one else uses the font bundles, so they check the referrer. If you strip referrers it'll block the response and eventually it'll timeout, and show using the default system font.

The choice is a delay for the few people who block referrers or a flash of unstyled content for everyone else.

-----


Ah, I see. Quite silly in my opinion but thanks for the answer. I'm fine with how it is -- there isn't a reason to protect the minority in this case: bigger fish to fry. :)

See "Ownership and Licensing of Intellectual Property" here: https://medium.com/policy/9db0094a1e0f

It doesn't matter if you retain ownership if you also give them a "broad license" to re-use the content. Ownership gets you little more than a little bit of control over your name in parts of Europe.

This is related to Typekit font loading, as outlined here:

http://help.typekit.com/customer/portal/articles/6852-contro...

We digged into it when it came up before, but I'll have another look and try to get in touch with the Typekit folks.

Any chance you can dump a net tab trace using Firebug or similar.

Here's the Firefox Developer Tools output for Net, on a page reload immediately after the original page load (which seems to cut down drastically on requests due to caching which makes it easier for me to copy/paste the only 3 lines)

Here's the full output of Firefox Developer Tools:

Thanks, this is useful. It's weird you are getting a 403 on the typekit request. It looks like the font-loader probably just times out. Do you happen to have any extensions that might strip referrer

-----


Bingo. That's the problem. Sorry, I figured starting Firefox in safe mode reverted my custom config. I had disabled referrer via about:config's network.http.sendrefererheader. Changing that value back to '2' (send referrer headers always) eliminates the problem. I guess only amongst HN readers can you count on people not sending this header. Anyhow, if TypeKit could not require this, that would be great. Thanks for looking into this, even though it might only help .001% of users.

-----


Could I get your UA string, it works fine on Chrome on my Androids.

-----


I'll have to get back to you on that when I get home.

-----


Thanks for the report, we hadn't noticed any problems. Will look into it.

-----


Thanks. My comment got some upvotes so I figure others are having the same problem. It loads perfectly in Chrome and Safari though. You might share your results with the Mozilla community if you figure it out.

-----


Really can't reproduce this. Tried it at home and at coffee shops. If you have anymore debugging info feel free to send it my way (dan at medium dot com).
