Hey guys, over my long “career” of Minecraft I have stumbled across a glitch where mining blocks too fast someones leaves some blocks invisible unbroken and when I try to go trough them I just get stuck and to fix it I have to place blocks where I think it is to finally remove it. Gets really annoying when I have to clear a 50 x 50 area in a cave for whatever reasons or generally clearing in the Nether. Does anyone know if there is a fix for this?

For these reasons, in this article, we will explore some of the best suggestions made by users on the official forums. Even though this is not a permanent fix for this issue, it may help some of you.
