Default Board Changes or Keyboard Locks Up

I rarely get a full three minutes to play.

Just now, in the middle of play, the board changed into a 3x5 array instead of 4x4! However, the scoring was as if the original board was there.

Many times my keyboard locks up or slows down while I'm playing.

Does anyone know how to fix this? It's still a 3x5 array after starting multiple new games. The letters aren't in the correct order for a 4x4 game, which is how it is being scored.

This happens to me, too. It could be one of several things:

1. It could be the browser. If you don't have Firefox or Opera, they work nicely, and they are both free. Firefox is good for everyone, and Opera is usually popular with programmers. Opera doesn't let anything run flash without your clicking on an arrow. I like that because no one runs something on my computer without my permission.

2. It could be that the mouse is sitting near the keyboard, but gets bumped somehow. If the keyboard "freezes," try clicking in the box. That usually fixes it for me.

3. I don't understand why the box rearranges into a non-4x4 arrangement, but I've seen that, too. It could be that someone is updating the site and has temporarily taken the old part out, but not yet put the new part in. If you have a touchpad, it may be that your hand accidentally bumps something??

I still have a 3x5 arrangement. Guess I'll be using the 5x5 board from now on.

I can use Version 2.2, but when I'm finished, the game board is 3x5 so I can't look back at words others played.

I tried logging out and logging back in, but that doesn't work.
