Tips & notes are gone once I click lesson (German)

I have noticing that the Tips & Notes link is nowhere to be seen when I enter a lesson. It has been there before but it is gone. :( The Tips and Notes information appears on the bottom of the skill page as usual. I am worried.

Is this normal?

Sorted by top post

On the new website the Tips and notes are gone in the mobile mode in the browser of a phone or tablet. But they are still visible in the Desktop mode in the browser of a phone or tablet.

However, I am using Duolingo on a PC.

Not all the Skills have Tips and notes under their lessons.
But I still have them in the first Skills in the tree, like Basics 1 and 2, The and Phrases. Are they missing on your PC?
If yes, then I need to know your

  • operating system + version number
  • and browser + version number

Hello again! Yes, they are still missing. :( I'm using Firefox 53.0.3 on Windows 10.

Your browser and operating system are up-to-date.
Normally I would suggest "Try another browser". But I am also using Firefox (the versions for Linux and Android). However, you can give it a try in Chrome or Edge.

More plausible, it is a bug in Duolingo's web version.
Because something weird was happening during testing the web version in Firefox on my Linux PC and Android phone in the German course ......

  • .... for English speakers: Both the PC and phone had "Tips and notes"
  • .... for French speakers: Pc had no "Tips and notes", Phone had "Tips and notes".
    However, when I had logged in at the same time on both devices, the "Tips and notes" also appeared on the PC.
    A very weird behaviour of Duolingo's web version.

I am not a computer expert, so I cannot help you further.

This is the link to the Duolingo Help Center for "How do I report a bug?"
