Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 Iceweasel/28.0a2 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131215004001

Steps to reproduce:

Users are presented with a page with nine boxes.
The best they can do is click X and then another choice is automatically chosen for them. They feel they have little control.



Expected results:

In bug 736540 we learn that there is actually a way to control things. However this is not obvious to users. Therefore there should be an explanation panel at the bottom or at least a question mark link, or at least something in the right click menus.
