I used to see "tips and notes" while on the home computer. Now there's nothing to see. Whassssup?
Hello, Knirps! The tips and notes have fortunately gone nowhere, even if it ironic the way to access them was supposed to be easier (word of a moderator). When you begin a lesson, you have a button to click, well, to begin. Beneath, you see the number completed/to be completed to next crown, and a light bulb icon on the right. That's where you find the tips and notes. Have a nice time on Duolingo!
Oh, Catherine, that is such a kind move! Thank you, thank you so much! I've noticed you as well as a voice of light on the forum. Don't you worry about my impression of Americans, I'm not one to let myself be blinded by prejudice, I only believe in 7 billions individuals, and every Americans I've met have been perfect "chics types" (good people). Welcome to my beautiful, twisted, headache-worthy langage ;) Sincerely hope to see you again around the forums! À bientôt :)
We heard in another thread, that for any reason the lighbulb button was not visible in the skill popup panel on the "Home" web portal (full desktop mode).
However, if this is the case (temporarily) for you, do not care too much about it and instead use this:
Each skill has a lighbulb "tips and notes" (if available) and a practice button behind it.
You can even read multiple notes for several skills on your single SHOF progress page.
I guess this is a temporary bug with the desktop? And it's with all languages. The interesting side effect is finding this progress thingy you pointed out. It's kind of interesting. I put in my own user name and I can see the progress of the language I last studied or am currently studying. Fascinating.

Either this, or it is/was done on purpose by staff because of this A/B test: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/27526489$comment_id=27934746
If a user completely can not access the lightbulb "tips and notes" button for a longer time he / she should check is official public extended userprofile (stream with lot's of variables :-)): http://www.duolingo.com/users/USERNAME
There might be another issue on DuoLingo on top of what you describe, that there is a test to remove "tips and notes" for several accounts.
I am not aware if this experiment is globally inactive or still selectively activated for several accounts, but according to some threads/comments in the past months, surely not EVERYONE has access to them on the web portal!
