Unable to return to the website’s home page

From the Discussions on https://forum.duolingo.com server the Home button takes me to the home page in the app and not the home page on the web site www.duolingo.com, to get to the webite’s home page I need to go to the Labs tab first and then select Home.

That's a recent issue in iOS devices.

The only solution that will work at the moment:
Completely delete the iOS App from that device and only exercise in www.duolingo.com in your device's browser.

That solution is entirely unacceptable to me.

As a very experienced Duolingo user, you know:
The more users submit a bug report, the greater the chance that Duolingo's staff is going to solve this issue ;-)

Another option would be to bookmark the DL homepage in the browser, and use the BM to jump back to the homepage.

Hm, when I try this on Android I get an in between screen asking me with which Browser or App I want to open the link (home button). So something seems indeed to be off, but I have not tested it on a pc.

On my phone (Android 7.1.1, Firefox browser 61.0) my only problem is:
https://forum.duolingo.com/ is constantly switching to the "mobile web mode", despite I have the "desktop mode" activated in Firefox.
Partial solution: I have to switch Firefox to "mobile mode" and back to "desktop mode".

Note:

  • De tabs Home, Words, Discussion, Lab , etc don't have the annoying behaviour of https://forum.duolingo.com/

  • I am never forced to use the Android App and get never a screen that is asking me with which browser or App I want to open the Home tab.
