Duo freezing up in Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6
I have checked for updates and rebooted my computer. My Safari is up to date. Duo works fine on my phone, but it keeps freezing up on my computer. (I try to play on the computer on the weekends because of the slightly different skills required.
Is anyone else having a similar problem, or does anyone know of a fix I might be missing? I'm playing in German. I haven't had time to try any other languages. because I've had to reboot too many times now.

Lots of people have already complained about this issue.
- try the latest version of the Google Chrome or Firefox browser
Some MAC- users are not able to update to the latest version of a browser due to their hardware:
so are you you using the latest versions of Safari V12 or 13?
Some background informations:
Quote: Duo freezing up
Welcome to the club!
Disabling "Hardware acceleration" did not really help me.
I have checked for updates and rebooted my computer.
Is there any chance for you:
- to upgrade or downgrade the graphic drivers
- sound drivers
Quote: because I've had to reboot too many times now.
Just kill the browser process/thread instance.
Don't reboot your computer.
If your whole computer is locked/frozen or crashes it is more a serious problem with some drivers or conflicting updates vs vendor driver support.
The question also is if EVERY lesson freezes on the www.duolingo.com Duolingo website or if you can get through 1-2 or 3-4 lessons and only then the freeze / slow down happens.
How much processor time is being used by the Firefox or Chrome browser process (usually there are multiple processes in later versions)?
Does it use up to 90 or 100%?
I recognized that once my Firefox .exe process in hanging on Windows with at least 50-65% or ore that I badly need to kill it (after 3-4, better 1-2 lessons).

Make sure to include as many detail informations about your system, browsers and uses versions as possible.
It may also make sense to include details about installed drivers (graphic, sound).
