This is the message I get (from the web) when I click in the games I want to play. So far, the only games I can play are the ones that I create. Why? This problem started two days ago (more less). I
am playing as Anonymous (not registered).

Good luck in fixing this bug, Thibault. Wonderful site! And thank you.

Hey, that's weird. What browser do you use? The name and the version number will help me diagnosticate the problem.

Hi Thibault!

My browser is Internet Explorer 8 (version 8.0.6001.18702IC). This warning message is indeed very strange.

I see you post as Anonymous when being Thibault. The same happens to me (I am Ajedrecista and I have just posted again in Perft(13) thread). Please check it.

I know that this is off topic: this morning I have played two 3+0 games and obviously I have created it (if not: appears this message): the contender was controlaltdelete! Quite good and I can only
add a thing that is quite known here: he is not a cheater for sure. I have played two games and, especially on the second (me white) I was even in the position for many moves and I lose because of
blundering a knight... so far, when I resigned the position was 4P vs. N+4P (that knight!). If I have blundered it, maybe (but only maybe) it should end in a draw.

Thanks for this quick response! Excellent client support. Keep your good work Thibault.

Of course:

If I have not blundered it, ...

(What a typo....).

Yeah I know controlaltdelete is not a cheater, I enjoy watching his games.

About the bug, there is a quick fix: change your browser. Internet explorer sucks. If you use any of these free modern browsers, everything will go fine: Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari.
Anyone but Internet explorer, which really is a terrible pain for web developers like me.

The strange thing is that IE has worked perfectly with LiChess until this week, when works incomplete (because games created by mine are played perfectly)... maybe it is a temporal bug.

I have looked at line 17 of font code (html) and puts this:

<a title="Toggle sound" href="/toggle-sound" id="sound_state" class="available sound_state_on"><span></span></a>

But I think it is not related with this issue. Thanks, anyway, for your effort. See you soon!

Bugs are temporal only I if fix them ;)

The problem here is that I need Internet explorer to study and fix that bug.
I don't have it. It can only be installed on Windows, I don't have Windows.
So... I'm not sure how I will do.
Someone also reported an other bug with ie8: game thumbs not beeing visible.

@Ajedrecista I believe the bug is fixed by now :)

Hi Thibault!

I am playing now a game that I do not create! If you can not install Windows, I am really amazed on how you fix this bug (what was wrong with IE8+LiChess?).

Thanks (again) for the quck bug fix! Bye!
