    I was using this browser, and I really liked it, but…. I found two "mistakes" that got me out of place.
    First, that the floating video window, the second time I activate it, it goes to the background, always behind any window.
    Second, is that when I see an image on Facebook, when I click on the "X" to close said photo, this x does not work, I must move through all that x to "square" and thus be able to close it.
    As I said, they are details, but it has already dragged on for a long time.
