Here's my suggestion to improve foldit:

1. When I open any new windows (Help, Undo, View option, Behavier Option, Cookbook - Menu)
then this new window should appear on top of the other already opened windows.

2. The Running recipe window should not cover the left sidebar window (Help, Undo, View option, Behavier Option, Cookbook - Menues) otherwise I can't check on Undo Menu how the progress is of the puzzle points.

3. When soon as a part of the puzzle is selected, then it's not to see anymore
what sidechains color (red / blue) there is.
Can we change the selected-color somehow to more clear versions?

4. How to freeze backbone only without sidechains?

5. Behavier View Option: at Start of an instance of foldit, it should load always last used Behavier View file - None is not a good option.

6. I miss the old controls, too! Some functionality not found in new controls!

7. Chats still not working - no messages to see !

(2) alt+u opens the undo window.

(4) above can be done with the recipe FreezeSelectSome1:
https://fold.it/portal/recipe/102617
There are also LUA commands to freeze/unfreeze 
backbones & sidechains separately.

(8) It seems like every time I start a new client or puzzle,
I have to change the mouse settings to my favorites.

(9) If you Tab on a residue, how do you show the same
information for an adjacent residue? We used to be able
to use the left and right arrows to do this. What must
we use now to scan through the info for each segment?

(10) It would be helpful to be able to click and drag
on more windows and icons to reposition them.

For (10), are there particular windows/icons that it would be particularly useful to reposition?

(10) Let us click and drag to reposition the box that lists 
what recipe is running (it has the buttons Cancel and Show 
Output on it) and the vertical bar with icons from top to 
bottom: (?) for help, a curved arrow for undo, an eye for 
view options, 3 gears for behavior, and a chef hat for 
the cookbook.

Regarding (6), do you have a list of the functionality you can't find anymore? (That would help figuring out what we might have missed, or how we might better advertise the new location.)

Regarding (6) - freeze backbone only, idealize a sheet with function idealize helix,
