is my brain dysfunctional? The feedback doesn't match the question right? I ge this:

Challenge Task 2 of 3 Next, select all visited links and set their text color to firebrick.

Bummer: Make sure you select unvisited links only.

a:visited {
    color: firebrick;

Your code is fine, great job. But you are going to want to leave in the code from the previous challenge, instead of removing it. so you would still need the a:link and set the color to darkorange. Under that you would have your a:visited CSS selector.

actually I am having the same problem. I wrote this...

a:link {

a:visited {

...and as reply it sends me this:

-Bummer: Are you setting the color of visited links to firebrick?-

Am I missing something here?
