Add Widgets label

Since when you click on the + Add widgets button, you can add or remove widgets, it seems that this button should be relabeled to either "+/- Widgets" or "Add/Remove Widgets"

Passwords

There is no reason for having these constant password changes. This only makes it more difficult to use.

Patent Docket

It would be nice if we could monitor patent applications that we have filed under our customer number right away. For some reason, it seems you have to wait until they are published.
