Long delay in listening exercises

I'm noticing a very long delay any time Duolingo has to speak. As it is, I've been waiting for a full minute for the words to start, but nothing. So I have to skip most exercises that have to do with listening, as clicking on the speaker/turtle only rarely works.

I didn't use to have this problem, and I haven't changed anything apart from the operating system - to Win10. Disabling Firefox add-ons didn't help, even after a restart, and every other application I'm running works fine when it comes to sound.

PS: the sounds at the end of a successful exercise are also sometimes missing.

It's not just you. Quite a few people have reported the same problem. Also, the problem's not just limited to French; but German, Spanish and other languages as well.

As fast as it appeared, it appears it's disappeared.

Yes. But it also happens on MacOS 10.10.4

OK, so it really has nothing to do with Win.
