Gracias, amigo!!!

    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? 

Bless All
