Solitaire IV suggestions, thoughts

Golf Easy is a favorite of mine, but there are a couple of real annoyances.

1) Please, please move the Store button somewhere else! If you miss a bit high as you go to flip the next card on the pile, you end up opening a web page for the store.

2) Why is the player being penalized 50 points for a misplaced mouse click, or on an unplayable card? There's certainly no advantage to the player for either instance. All it does is slow you down and cost you bonus points as it is. Applying a -50 point penalty for something that already is a time penalty is just adding insult to injury.

3) The game can't count mouse clicks. This was an issue in version 3, also. Can't tell you how often I've clicked (example) twice quickly to play two cards in the same column, and the game somehow thinks there have been three clicks, and I once again get penalized for an unplayable card. My mouse makes a pretty noticeable click, and I have no trouble counting two. Why can't the game come up with the same count? If it's seeing the two rapid clicks as one, and then determining an OS tagged double click out of how close they were together (and so counting it a total of three), I'm not sure what you could do to stop it. Other than ignoring any double click message from the OS and always counting it as one, rather than two. If that's even possible.

Likely has already been brought up many times, but there is no Options page on any of the latest version IV games, despite the fact the tips that pop up tell you to go to Options > xxx to turn something off, or change the settings. It would be greatly appreciated if many of the version III options actually existed in version IV.

Whoops! Yes, there is of course an Options screen on Solitaire IV, and the new v2 versions of Hearts, Spades, Backgammon and Euchre, but none of the new versions have the Effects options screen, which the tips tell you they exist to change things like turning off Fooms, Score Particles, Natural Piles, and other items all in the previous versions.
