"Discuss sentence" button sometimes won't respond
Sometimes when I click on it I get nothing.
Does it happens to you too?
How to overcome it?
I use chrome.
It happens to everyone regardless of OS or browser.
Sometimes it's the one sentence and you can't open the discussion ever. You can't even access the sentence by searching for it in the appropriate forum (well you can find it in the search results, but when you click on it, it won't load).
Sometimes it's like your Duo interface goes haywire and after hitting one discussion that won't open, none of them open. If this happens, you can try closing/opening your browser, clearing your cache, etc. It will eventually clear up.

Yes, this happens to me frequently. Glad to know it is a general issue. Thank you for your suggestions and clarifications.
Why is your answer treat it like a "normal" state of affair?
It seems to be a crucial bug in the interface which needs to prioritize.
If it happens to me in a middle of a lesson, and I wanted to clarify something which seemed important, this can cause me to close it in the middle of my progress.
Can be frustrating.
I hope this issue will get fix soon! Thank you all.
It is a long-known bug that staff have not prioritized. I do not know their rationale and cannot speak for them.
