made a new email account.
made a new kellyschat account.

same results in chat. it looked like some new people could actually see one or two people in the chat already which is a little different. essentially it's still the same effect. i don't even need my cam on i noticed yesterday. if i click on the start cam box the same thing happens. i think if i left new people's chat view came back. i have to leave for it to work normally again. i can come back with no cam option on and it works.

i'm using firefox 57 now. didn't matter when i used chrome or anything else. all cookies and temp files cleared. no difference.
