That is one problem -- I want those arrows back. AND wider scrollbars (if that
is possible -- skinny scrollbars might be fashonable, but are really hard to

Another is the *lack* of a place to *type* a file name when you click a file
upload button. The file upload browser both comes up too tall (taller than my
screen [why?]) and lacks a place to start typing a file name, one *must*
scroll down though (in my case) a long list of files and directories. It seems
that the use of a keyboard is no longer supported. *Some* of us actually use
our keyboards and don't like to point and click *all of the time* (or really
much of the time or really at all). I know, the keyboard is a piece of
depreciated hardware -- we are all supposed to be using touch screens with 
only colorful icons -- actually typing file names is so 20th century... :-)
