WordPress Reader Page Access Problems

Last week I could not access my Reader page. I received a notice that my browser needed to be upgraded, so I did that and still could not look around at the other WordPress blogs through the Reader. Finally, I came across this WordPress forum page and found the help I needed. One of the posts includes a helpful checklist of things to do in addition to upgrading the browser. I thought I would share this information because other people might be having the same problem too.
