    I'm having a similar problem, with all of my browsers, and found that the last two files you listed above are blocked by an organizational firewall.

    I too have the two files blocked at work.

    I assume there is no way around this without getting the firewall changed?

    You have to work with your local network admin. Sorry!

    And now Safari is really old and there is a 5.0.6 version; the one I'm using now

    Just in case anyone from wants to know:

    I use a mac Air laptop in Holland and Belgium where I have no problem to get the chessboard up in e-chess. However, now I am in Spain with the same laptop and I cannot get the chess board to show in e-chess. Also chess mentor and Tactics trainer do not show boards. The rest of the site works perfect. I tested my browser and here are the results:

    What browser/version are you using?: Google Chrome Full version 18.0.1025.151

    Session Cookies = True

    Java Script Enabled = True

    Firewall = False

    Width / Height (numbers) = 1366 / 768

    Broadband = True (1.34 Mbps, latency 212 ms)

    Platform = OSX Lion 10.7.3

    For several days the site worked completely (about 2 days ago), but now e-chess and chess mentor / tactics trainer do not show a board.

    It is not a problem, as I use the iPad app and that works perfect. But maybe you wanted to know.

    BTW, I love the site. Excellent!, thanks.

    Please help:

    When playing correspondence/online/e-mail chess I can see the outline of the board but no pieces. I cannot use the daily chess puzzle nor the tactics trainer. So far, I have been forced to lose 6-10 online games (which are no vacation tournies) and my timeout ratio is up to 17% and will increase to over 20% in the next 24h.

    I've read through the posts outlined on this website and nothing seems to resolve the issues. I have run the test in both my browsers (Firefox 7 Safari) and the results are below:

    1. Safari 5.1.5

    2. True

    3. True

    4. False

    5. 1280/800

    6. False

    7. Mac


    1. Firefox 12.0

    2. True

    3. True

    4. False

    5. 1280/800

    6. False

    7. Mac


    In this link:



    I see a list of text.


    For this link:



    I just see a picture of a bishop.


    Some help or advice would be appreciated. This is a very recent problem and is severely hindering the enjoyment and value I get from


    Many Thanks

    Hi.   For me it's the latest update of Java that made me lose all java functions.  Has that been an issue for other people or just me?  I removed all earlier versions and deleted the cache, too, and the JavaTester said it was successfully installed.  I may just revert to an earlier java version and try that.  But for now, with my version 7 update 25, Applets never actually load and the play vs. computer screen demands I load Java.   

    This is with IE 8.0, Windows XP, SessionCookies and Javascript = T, width 1280, heighth 720, Broadband True, Firewall false (even though Comodo says it's working...).

    Why stop calling it email chess.. It makes more sense then online chess. All chess on is online..

    Strange world!    Now when I sign in, the applets still don't load but the play vs. computer did function, after security pop-ups first made me assume the responsibility for using your UNSIGNED product.

    It's a browser issue or install a new  java version.

    I had to install new Java version 7.  After install I get this message: 


    Name: play against the computer applet


    Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running. 

    I don't know how to allow this new application to get unblocked.  Any advise?  Using windows vista
