Freeze - Refresh, Freeze - Refresh, Freeze - Refresh.

Every time I try to do a lesson it freezes after I click "check." The only solution I see then is to refresh the page, erasing all of my progress on said lesson and making me start the entire lesson again. After I refresh the page, it freezes again after two or three questions. This process repeats nearly every time I try to do a lesson. It is very frustrating. How can this be fixed?

I've tried it in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari - for all of them, the problem continues.

This keeps happening to me, it's taking up a lot of precious time

I found a temporary fix, if you highlight the URL then hover your mouse over the reload button (chrome), once you press enter to reload the highlighted stuff immediately press on the stop button where the reload button was. hope that makes sense

This post appears to be a year old, yet I am having the same issue. Was this never resolved? Currently using Safari.

I can't even get passed the first lesson! It keeps happening to me as well and I've tried all browers and "tricks" - let me know if you get a response from duolingo, or if you've figured out how to solve the problem!

This happens intermittently for me (on Firefox 24.0), but almost always on the last "continue" at the end of a lesson, so I've done all the work but don't get the credit.

It fixes itself if I log out, then close and restart the browser before returning to Duolingo.

I have been having the same problem and it is very frustrating! I have used every browser and trick as well. I have been on Basics 1/1 in Portuguese for a week and cannot move forward. I even downloaded the app on my iphone and it freezes as well! I so bummed.

i use Safari and it happens to me always at the end of the lesson and when I have three hearts - most frustrating. It freezes irrespectively whether I click or use enter.
