Seeks I Didn't Create in Live Chess

    In the middle of a 1|0 game, I had a seek accepted that I never issued. Obviously I can't play two 1|0 games at once, so I aborted the newly accepted seek. I'm not worried about account restrictions or anything, but I don't like aborting games, and it's very distracting when a new game randomly shows up that I don't want to play. I've heard that basic members aren't even supposed to be able to play multiple games at once. This has happened twice now. After my previous game, I hit New 1 min exactly once, my seek gets accepted, and halfway into the game another game pops up in a new game tab. I'm using Firefox and the 'simple' live chess board if that matters.

    The first time it happened to me was on Feb. 2, but I hadn't played live chess for weeks before that. When was the first time it happened to you?

    You can turn the ability to play multiple simultaneous games off under Settings->Play.

    It's already off. I just checked to make sure. I turned that option off months ago.
