Links in the discussion

I clicked on a link in a discussion. Thing is it opened in the same window which destroyed my current lesson and I had to start over. Not a big deal but something that should be fixed.

Yes, I agree, but you can make it open in a different window by holding control as you click on the link.

Right and I know that but assumed it would not behave like that. Also vast majority of people are unaware of that little trick.

Ctrl+click does work but it's not ideal and it is easy to absentmindedly click then boom, bye-bye lesson!

It works on links going to other websites, but not on links leading to other places on Duolingo.

Oh well that's no good. Then you have to do Right-click > Open in new tab.

Have you ever tried to click on a link with the middle mouse button (given you have one)? This should open the linked web page in a new tab. Works at least with Firefox and Internet Explorer. It also works with Duolingo web pages inside of Duolingo.
