Losing progress upon Ctrl+clicking a link at the top

Browser: Chrome

I was in the middle of a lesson and wanted to know something on Duolingo. I held Ctrl and clicked the lingot. It took me to what I wanted, but in the current tab, and when I went back the lesson started over.

There are really 2 issues: (1) Clicking Duolingo links in a lesson destroys progress in the lesson, and (2) Ctrl+clicking Duolingo links opens them in the current tab, not a new one

Same thing happens in Firefox and has for a long time. Middle-clicking (or using the corresponding touchpad gesture, usually tapping with three fingers) instead works for me, though.
