When my students are playing multiplication games in the group, the subject often switches from multiplication to another subject (e.g. English). There appears to be a glitch in the website; please fix this. Also, the image of the rice accumulation on the side has glitches too.
The developers recently implemented a solution for this bug – it seems the cookies were being deleted due to a server overload, resulting in totals disappearing and subjects defaulting back to English Vocab.
They have since placed an expiry date on cookies for 24 hours, which they hope will resolve the matter.
Can you confirm if this is now resolved?

I play without an account, and it worked perfectly earlier this year, but now every few questions it switches from Latin back to English.
My computer is a Chromebook, and since the last time I visited Freerice I have added a Linux system (Xenial) alongside Chrome OS using a program called Crouton. This should not have affected how my Chrome browser deals with this site, or with cookies, but it is possible that it did. That may be the root of the problem in my case. I doubt it, though.

I created my own account 111/15/11 and have had the same issues - subjects switching while in the middle of playing, losing rice and totals.

I just signed up and was doing Spanish vocabulary and it always switches back to English vocabulary. Today is 11/10, and this just happened...several times in a row. I'd be going along with Spanish words, then suddenly I was switched back to English words.

I have experienced this glitch as well, the weird thing is that it is only half switching. For example, I was in literature, then it switched to vocabulary, then it asked me "The Butcher Boy means" with authors as the responses.
