Keyboard shortcuts 1-2-3 stopped working

I noticed that since a few days/weeks, the keyboard shortcuts for the multiple choice questions (e.g. 1-2-3) stopped working. Does anyone else have the same problem?

I am using Firefox 53 on Ubuntu 16.04.

Edit (March 2018): This has since long been fixed. Thanks! :-D

Ok, I tested it also with IE 11 on Windows 10 x64 and all keyboard shortcuts worked. With Firefox 53 on the same Computer they donĀ“t work anymore or only partially. So the problem seems to be between the new duolingo code and Firefox.

Yes and I already posted it several times. Before I operated on the duolingo website only with keyboard shortcuts and especially the timed practices are very hard without the shortcuts.

I also use Firefox 53 on Windows 7 and 10, both x64

Which website version are you working with? In my case the keyboard shortcuts partially stopped working after my website has been upraded to a newer version a few days ago (Activity stream, Review and the quiz disapeared and so on).

No, the problem sadly still persists. I am ok ;-) , but al least the keyboard shortcuts are not ok.

@Annielue1024 Sorry, this thread belongs to the functionality of the website, not the mobile apps.
