Problems after iOS update

Since updating to iOS 9.1 I've found that after completing a puzzle it no longer closes and registers as complete as it did previously. I'm still enjoying solving the puzzles, but is an update to fix this planned?

Apple have changed the way Safari works in iOS 9 on iPad and as a result the puzzle completion window no longer appears. You can work around this by going to Settings on your iPad and scrolling down to the Safari settings. In that section, switch "Block Pop-ups" to off. When you finish a puzzle, Safari will then pop up a box asking if you wish to allow the pop-up, which you should answer "Allow" to.

Probably the only way for me to fix this is to make the completion window load inside the main puzzle window, which will affect all users so will not be a quick fix. I haven't had time to look at this yet, but hope to in the new year.

In the mean time, changing this option has no negative effect (since you still get warned about pop-up windows anyway), but lets the site work again. I think it is a bug in iOS anyway, since it only happens on iPads, not on iPhones!
