Minor irritation with functionality following recent change

Has anyone else noticed that following the introduction of crowns clicking the complete button now returns you to the Home screen rather than back to the Skill on which you were working?

Probably no big deal initially but as I have reached skill 103/123 it involves a lot of scrolling. What is even more irritating is that if I am strengthening a skill in the middle it means having to find it again after completion of every stage.

I appreciate that this is very much a "first world problem" but minor irritations, unchecked, can often lead to major issues (though I have no idea why, a psychologist I am not!)

I'm doing the Spanish tree, but for me, after completing a lesson in the skill I'm working on, after I click continue it goes back to that same skill and the blue menu box appears and I can just click "start" to do another lesson. After completing a crown level (i.e. going from level 2 to level 3) is when it does take me back to the whole tree and I have to manually find which skill I want to work on next. Not a big deal to me, as I'm going through it systematically.

It does not do that for for me :(

But I've got 3 upvotes and 1 lingot, so it is not just me. Maybe I'll try a different browser.

I just did one lesson in one of the skills in my Dutch tree and I did not experience what you are experiencing. In other words, after I finished the questions in the lesson, it automatically went to "continue." I clicked "continue" and it took me back to the skill I was working on.

Likely it's browser related, as I get the same problem as mentioned above on the Dutch tree. I'm using Safari.
