mbed IDE user interface feedback using Mac OS X Safari 7.1.6 OS X 10.9.5)

Using the Mac I have some little problems or enhancement ideas.

a) Sometimes CMD-B does not work, a second CMD-B works. It looks like the key event gets lost, unfortunately document how to reproduce it, however it happens many times per hour.

b) Source code scrolling via Mac Book trackpad is too fast (not smooth) using Safari The problem appears only within the mbed IDE only, the same problem for scrolling via the scroll bar, however I use the trackpad mostly. It is almost impossible to use the trackpad for source code positioning.

c) Commit message text editor should enable browser spell checking. By default this enabled on all web pages. In mbed it is disabled which makes sense for code, however for the Commit message field and editing .txt files it would be of help.

d) Multiple HTML resource missing warnings. Open the Safari developer view and you will see the error messages, e.g.: Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

Regards Helmut

BTW: I am new to the mbed platform and find it very exciting.

I can reproduce CMD-B failure, push CMD-S (saving is busy) and now CMD-B, while the saving is busy (DSL line) the CMD-B gets lost. When I wait until save is completed CMD-B works right.
