It’s only a short while to Christmas. Ludamus wishes all its readers a happy festive season. And since we all like puzzles, here’s one to keep you occupied over the turkey and pud.
In the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, how many presents are mentioned in total? (Clue: It’s not just 1+2+3…+11+12, if you add up each verse)
If the new Firefox 29 (Australis) has been driving you up the wall with its insistence on where you will have your buttons, then there’s a solution. Ludamus has been discomfited by the refresh button being permanently embedded in the address bar, and the refresh button being merged with the stop one.
There’s also the extra irritation of the back and forward buttons being glued into one chunk, but the really big issue is that Firefox’s customisation options doesn’t allow you to change these things. Did they find it too difficult to code, or are they just telling that we don’t know our own minds?
Firstly, use Firefox’s customising feature to change as much as you can.
Then use the Tools > Addons>Get Addons to search the add-ons for Firefox, and choose and install Classic Theme Restorer.
Once you’ve got this installed, you can repair some of the Mozilla-induced damage to your browser.
