Strengthen skills & extra time

I usually try to use the strengthen skills option on Duolingo at least once a day, either on the web version or iOS. But today, I noticed in the latest web update, extra time is not being granted for correct responses. I can read and type pretty quickly, but not that fast!

Is anyone else noticing this problem?

Thank you for your attention.

Yes and it is driving me crazy! I'm not sure what changed. Also, there doesn't seem to be a speaking element anymore. I am doing three languages. There never was a speaking element in Hungarian but there definitely was in French and German. It is totally frustrating! :(

I've been using Strengthen exclusively this time down the tree, and I've never noticed any time limits. I fact i might get up and go away for an hour or so between questions. Where are you seing time limits?

today, when i try to do the speaking/recording bit in skill strengthen, it won't give me a second try if it doesn't pick it up the first time. i should mention that this is in the web version. haven't had any major issues with the iOS version, even with the update.
