It was hard to find a place on the panel, suddenly crowded in that
compressed form, where I could properly do a right click. I deleted the
panel button for Firebird - I mean Firefox, to find room. I guess I
will use the machine-hardware-internet button henceforth.
Now, is there a way to lock the thing there, and later to unlock it
if needed? I prefer to keep the taxonomy of the Animal and Vegetable
and Fungal kingdoms in my head, rather than the greater myriad of
compu-jargon and complexity. That is what notebooks are for?
