Zombie games in chess24

Zombie games in chess24

Strange problem appears in playzone sometimes. It looks like a game failed to start properly. The playing room displays the board, but opponent's name appears to be empty. When I press Abort button and confirm abort in pop-up window, abort button became disabled (gray) and nothing more happenes. Any attempt to leave the page with "aborted" game displays pop-up "Are you sure you want to leave the game?" just like it is a normal game in progress. Other pages shows "Back to the game" button. Any attempt to click this button (or "Play" button in the main menu) returns me into this zombie game with starting position and missing opponent. I can find no silver bullet to terminate zombie, but it looks like it disappears after few hours. Then, I can play some more games until new zombie arrives. I am very tired of this crap.

Yesterday it looked like Alexandr Grischuk saw the same problem near the end of his banter blitz session, but somehow he managed to kill the zombie at the end.

I use Firefox 63.0.1 64-bit Windows 10 version (may be it is browser-specific). My laptop runs Firefox under Windows 8.1 and have the same problem. First appearance of the problem was noticed about a week ago.
