Encountered bug from rapid key press

Tell us what’s happening:

I pressed “Ctrl + Enter” to proceed to the next challenge and possibly pressed it twice in a row, allowing me to proceed to the challenge subsequent to the next challenge. I didn’t proceed because I knew that wasn’t what I was supposed to do.

Now I’m at a point where I cannot proceed to the next challenge. Based on the screenshot I’ve provided it’s obvious that the test isn’t testing for what the challenge is asking.

I was able to fix the problem with a page refresh, but I thought you guys might like to know that this can happen. Based on similar topics this may be a source for much confusion.

Your code so far


// Example
var ourName = "freeCodeCamp";
var ourStr = "Hello, our name is " + ourName + ", how are you?";

// Only change code below this line
var myName;
var myStr;

Challenge: Constructing Strings with Variables

Link to the challenge:

Hi Randell, thank you for looking into this. If you click the link to the exercise you’ll see that it does not involve the += operator.

The challenge I was on was the one prior to the one with the error state and it wasn’t my first. I suspect that the subsequent keypress caused the test to run on the following challenge prior to the test requirements loading causing it to run the previous test on the wrong challenge thus allowing the progression without completing the challenge. So this should work on any test.
