Can't see any tips and notes

I've just started using duolingo, and I'm at French level 6 and Spanish level 7. I'm using it in Firefox 44.0 in OS 10.6.8.

I've just found out that I should be able to see tips and notes for most of the lessons, but I can't see anything other than the lesson activity. Is there any reason why I can't see them?

I have two accounts and this one can't see tips on notes on any browser, but the other can. ???

Actually I have just been told that there are silly A/B tests, probably meant to see if tips and notes actually help. I also cannot access immersion. What the heck, duolingo?

Ok, I just found out, that I see the Hints and notes sections after logging out. What a foolishness.

It's very frustrating that no-one at duolingo has responded. I've submitted this issue as a bug report too, but have had no response.

I've also realised that I can't see my word lists.

Another user tried their account on my computer and they can see the tips and notes, and word lists. Bizarre.

duolingo, please respond! I feel like stopping using the site now, as I'm only able to access parts of it.

Some skills don't have tips and notes.

I know, but I'm surprised I haven't seen any yet. There have been none for the lessons I've completed so far, and those have included personal and demonstrative pronouns. I'd be really surprised if there weren't any notes for those topics. I have a feeling I'm not seeing them, rather than they don't exist for the lessons I've taken.

To be sure I would need to check against someone else's lessons, so if anyone here can access French level 6 or Spanish level 7 and see notes please let me know.

Interesting... maybe you should try reloading the page if you haven't already.

Yes, tried that to no avail. If you can spare a minute, can you let me know if any tips & notes appear in German Basics 1? I can't see any there either.

Yes, there are tips and notes for German Basics 1. Unfortunately, I am not a tech geek so hopefully someone else will be able to assist you from here. Good luck!

I have the same problem. I keep seeing comments that talk about "tips and notes section of the lesson" in discussions of questions, but I have never seen any tips and notes apart from those that appear within questions.

I have the same problem. I just started the swedish course and in the comments they talk about tips and notes but i can't find them. I have tried internet explorer instead of firefox to see if it is a browser problem, but still nothing

I'm hoping someone from duolingo support has a look at this soon. I'm still having the same problem.
