When I slide the green button to the right, Stockfish used to start immediately. Now it rarely does anything except stall. I've used different computers. Is there a bug being worked on? Thanks.

Same for me. Works in Chrome but not Safari. Noticed it maybe a week ago

+1, Firefox 52.2.0 ESR on Debian Linux

From what I can tell this is a duplicate of

I've used the import game feature and it works up to white's 5th move, after that it stalls.

On safari as well and it's not loading.

Just hangs. :(
