Wish I could provide better feedback but it doesn't happen super consistently, the 3x3 puzzle is just the worst one for it. If it helps at all, the pieces that go in the middle of the top and bottom rows are the ones that, for me, almost always fail to connect. It happened some in later puzzles, but never before that puzzle.
