After failing to open a puzzle's ZIP file (which usually happens when loading the puzzle in several different windows at once), Foldit will just sit on the loading screen in. At that point, you have to close the client, log in again, etc.

The best option here, besides fixing the error, would be to replace the "OK" button on the error message with two buttons:

1. A "Retry" button that attempts to open the puzzle again

2. A "Back" button that returns to the puzzle menu.
