duolingo no longer works

Since the redesign my duolingo has lost many features including lesson practice. My practice screen comes up blank in the middle though I believe the practice questions are still there. When I hit enter I hear the question and can type the answer and get it marked...although I see nothing on the screen. Anyone else having this problem? I have a Mac. My neighbour's duolingo (also with a Mac) is working fine.

Thanks for working on this. As yet I don't see any improvement. I still can't access Lesson Practice and I'm still getting a blank screen.

Unfortunately, Safari 5.0.6 specifically doesn’t seem to like our new layout :-(. We are still working on finding a solution. In the meantime, please try with other browser like Firefox or Chrome.

Edit: you may need to update your mac OS to get an updated version of Safari or to install Chrome.

The fix works on my iPad but not on my Mac desktop. Un peu bizarre n'est-ce pas ?

What browser are you using? Also, what type of internet connection are you using? Do you have satellite or are you behind a proxy?

I'm using Safari and I have cable internet and a home WiFi. I have been able to use all the features of duolingo up until yesterday. So I'm still puzzled. Thanks for your comment.

Hi there, do you know what the Safari version is? You can find it in Safari > about Safari

It's 5.0.6...it's fairly old...but it's always worked with duolingo

I have the same problem. With the same versions (Safari 5.0.6 with os X 10.5.8). I have tried with Spanish and Frensh lessons und lost 25 lingots because I wanted to do a certificate.

My big question to you is now: Could you solve the problem? I have this problem only since yesterday (since I saw the new web design). Luckily I can use Duolingo on the app.
