Subject line says it all, really. I can’t see how to make the Scratchpad less translucent. At the moment, it’s just too ghostly, and I keep hitting it by mistake, particularly when I have it floating around the vicinity of my browser window on my little MacBook screen. Go to click on a link and – hello? a Scratchpad? Gosh and blast.

Nope, you’re not missing anything - there is no setting for the scratchpad translucency. Looking at it again, it is very ghostly. What I shall probably do is make it a little less ghostly and then add a “hidden” preference for its opacity.
