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.
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.
