Description of the problem: For one of my participants, there are some data missing from the data file - even though all the trials are recorded. The experiment collects mouse click responses. The file has the data indicating whether the response was correct or not, but is missing data (empty brackets) on the position of the mouse click, the identity of the stimulus clicked, and the response times. This is true for most of the trials following the initial few. I was wondering what might be causing this. And also whether this might be related to issues reported by a couple of users, i.e. task being ‘glitchy’ and not accepting their responses (causing them to quit the task and hence no data). I have not been able to reproduce these issues on my end. Even when I temporarily disconnect my network, this does not cause the task to be glitchy. These do not appear to be browser-related issues: we instruct participants to use Chrome or Firefox, and participants who had these issues were on Chrome. Any suggestions as to what may be causing this or how to debug this would be greatly appreciated. E.g. is it possible this would be caused by firewalls, adblockers, etc?
