I have this problem frequently, and find it infuriating. Searching the forums, it seems like there are long-standing problems with opening discussions. There may be more than one bug. There are discussions that won't open at all, even from the forum pages. Also the discussion button can stop working for the duration of a lesson, regardless of whether the discussions can be opened when finding them in a search.

If you use Chrome or Firefox you can press ctrl-shift-i to open developer tools, and look at the console. I see an error message there whenever the discuss sentence button stops working. If I already have the console open during a lesson, the error appears the instant I hit the discuss sentence button on its first failure. If you see error messages on the console too, you could take a screenshot and report a bug.

PS you could consider editing your post and moving it to the "troubleshooting" forum.

I've had that same problem, I wish someone would fix it.

I've heard that it's because they don't want spammers being able to post on every single sentence. But, I'm not sure. You can always write down the sentences and then search them in the Discussions search bar.

Whenever I try to do that, I can't open it there either.
