Surely it cant be normal behaviour? if i havent caught one, fair enough, but let me keep browsing the site without reloading

Chrome users are not being given a fair & equal chance of winning a prize
(i caught none in nearly 2 days on chrome so switched to firefox & got 1 almost immediately)

maybe the competition should be voided until the glitch is resolved
#14
I've just done a side by side test ...1 HUKD on chrome and 1 HUKD on Firefox - up pops a flamedeer (ok i did miss out) on firefox within 20 mins. I have seen 2 in 2 days on chrome!

so that additional reindeer layer that pops up, is it right that you must refresh your entire page to get rid of it?

I'm not too sure what i did after clicking the flamedeer link it just told me that i had missed my chance.

I'm using chrome and have caught several, no problems - yesterday at work was on firefox and nothing all day.
#18
It just popped up for me on iPad??
banned#19
Im on Chrome and caught 5 white and 3 silver.
#20
could it be because of popup/ad blockers (I do use such for chrome)?
#21
Using chrome on the PC and old site layout, they popped up and dissappeared correctly. using the new web layout doesnt get rid of the layer if you miss the catch me now link. Guess its just down to new vs old layout and as I open about 5 tabs i'm interested in at a time, i'm just too slow to catch them. still, would be good to dismiss the layer if i've missed it by about 5 mins
#22
I'm using Chrome on my mobile, I haven't seen any, let alone caught one
#23
I'll tell you when I find any been looking for 2 days on average of 6 hours a day and haven't seen even a white one yet lol
#24
Mine isn't working on IE either. They pop up and you click on them but nothing happens. It's infuriating! I say "they" but I mean "it"! There is no chance of winning anything unless they fix this issue.
#25
I too caught few using chrome. might be some add-ons creating the issue.
#26
I've seen absolutely none at all - I'm on Chrome 64-bit with only the Google Cast and Ghostery extensions installed. Nothing should be blocking them, seen no "popup blocked" warnings but I thought they were popups as part of the page not new windows entirely...

It looks like it isn't working at all on the new responsive skin, I used the below link to go back to older skin:

I've not picked up anything yet but it looks like the page is actually checking for flamedeer now whereas it wasn't before... It's probably too late now as there is only a week left :(
#28
I too am a Chrome user, nothing since day one
#29
Switched to IE and within 5 minutes failed to catch one in time and then did catch another, two chances in 5 minutes using IE and no chances in the best part of two days using Chrome
#30
Yes certainly a bug, I use Chrome all the time and within 5 mins of using IE I caught a flamedeer. I would be nice if we got official confirmation of this, or the fact the developers are looking into it.
#31
I just had the same issue.

A window popped up at the bottom of my screen, but I wasnt able to click on it, regardless of whether I scrolled up or down.

Gutted ! :(

That's the effect. Worst part it its about 25%of my screen gone and you have to refresh to clear it. Glad it's not just me. I was having doubts that my days were even real anymore

Holy crap on a cracker, I just caught my first flamedeer after swapping skins this morning!

Nearly had a heartattack when it came up!

I am having this issue with Chrome - half of the flamdeer pop-up is off the screen. Can just about click on it. I haven't been catching any flamedeer while browsing the site, just when the links come through Facebook/Twitter etc.

#38
I have caught 3 whites (2 of these being the same white) but I have have had some that pop up and seem to crash the Internet explorer tab (nothing happens when i click on the catch button, cant navigate to another page and I have to close the tab)

Sounds like a similar issue. I'm not as fussed catching them but if it crashes my browser I'm getting a bit naked!

Just out of curiosity I went back on Chrome and nothing, closed it opened IE and caught one in under a minute. I find it strange that no official announcement has been made in regards to the issues finding deer using Chrome
