On the ampersand problem: Firefox and Safari are the same. Also Safari
complains about not being able to access the web socket and says that I
won't be able to run code.

On the pulldown menu, I'm having trouble reproducing it right now. I know
that sometimes the problem is me in that I have to be more careful in
observing which cell is actually active when I use the menus. It's not a
big deal, but I'll be more careful to record my observations if I suspect
this is happening again.
