Bug at live chess

  • 3 years ago · Quote · #1


    Hello, I was playing this game


    at live chess yesterday and at move 43 I was going promote my pawn when something strange happened. I did not see a window where you are supposed to choose a piece. Here is a screenshot:

    I was forced to click on random and picked a rook which is a draw. Fornutately my oponent did not defend well and I was able to win. However, I think that the same thing happened to him because on move 49 he promoted to a bishop. Would be great if this could be fixed. Thanks a lot.

    Win 7, 64bit, Firefox 19.0.2. BTW, before, during the game, chessboard suddenly shrunk. Maybe I accidentaly pulled somewhere (you know, like changing the size of the chessboard).

    Yeah, I tought that this is not something that happens every day, it might be difficult to replicate, but you see that I am not the only one.

    What operating system, browser and browser version are you using when this happens?

    When does this start happening exactly?

    Do you have move highlights turned on or off?

    Do you have any plugins or add-ons installed in your browser?
