Duolingo removed 'Enter' keyboard shortcut on dashboard

After finishing a lesson I'm always redirected back to the dashboard, I had the ability to press the 'Enter' button on my keyboard. This would immediately start the next lesson. As someone who likes to be efficient this was extremely helpful.

However, since Duolingo's latest update they have removed this keyboard shortcut which I found to be a critical feature and saved me time. Now I have to click on the lesson and then click the 'Start' button to start the next lesson.

Although these two click actions take a little bit more time I find it extremely frustrating that the UI/UX team removed the 'Enter' keyboard shortcut on the dashboard. This really makes me not want to use this product as it interrupts my flow of going through lessons.

Am I missing something here. Is there a new keyboard shortcut that can be used that I don't know about? Am I going to have to create a browser extension for myself to fix this?
