When you say "icons at the sidebar" presumably you mean in the sidebar 
sections? Install Google Chrome and the icon will appear in the Internet 
section. Right-click on it to add to the Favorites section. Similarly 
you can right-click on the Firefox icon in Favorites and choose 
"Remove". (That does not uninstall it - just removes it from the section).
Same with TBird - install it and the icon appears in the Internet 
section. Right-click to add to Favorites, right-click on Evolution to 
remove from favorites.

Insert the DVD drive to a USB port, then click on the Files and Folders 
section on the L/H side. The mounted disk will appear in a window below 
all the internal files and folders.
If you need more specific help then I'll try and post some pictures on 
my blog...
