Bugs in the system 28/07/17?

Trying to do strengthening exercises this evening on Polish. On a number of the exercises, I gave the exact answer, but it rejected it. When I tried to look at the discussion points for that exercise, it opened up a completely new tab of Duolingo. On a couple of the sentences, I had tried to report under 'report a problem' but the option of 'My answer should be accepted' was not available. Anyone else had similar problems this evening? It was OK earlier.

The discussion opening in a new tab/window is part of the web rewrite.

Rejecting the exact answer does sound like a bug.

Not having "My answer should be accepted" might be a change, or a bug, or normal - different types of exercises have different options, I've noticed.

Thanks for your help. Lingot sent separately! I have also noticed that 'My answer should be accepted' does not always show as an option when reporting problems with exercises and, in such situations, it's hard to know how to report. Regarding your first point, the new tab that was opening when I clicked on 'view discussion' or similar on the exercises was a completely new tab for Duolingo, requesting that I sign in!! I don't think that would have been an intentional part of the web re-write! Fortunately, it's back to normal this evening, so my blood pressure is back to normal!

Requesting that you sign in!!! O.O

Nope, that's not right. My sentence discussions open in new tabs but I'm not asked to sign in again. What a pain!

Glad to hear it's gone as mysteriously as it came.

I have a different problem: many (not all) of my "type what you hear" questions have no audio, so course I have no answer. I have been clicking on "skip" and noting the correct answer. Then when another no-audio q

(somehow I got disconnected) when another no-audio question came up, I could try that for the answer. But if there were two or three or more incidents, I would have to guess which was the correct one - nearly impossible. The audio is fine in all other aspects. What could be the cause?

ABOUT A WEEK LATER: For a few days the problem was gone, but now it has reappeared. Is there something I could do to fix it?

It is even worse today. It is such a frustrating waste of time. I am about to quit the program. Where can I get help?
