Difficulty adjustments, 1B4B, bugfixes

Today I fixed a bug that caused the "free scam" website still showing up after closing the browser. It not disappears with it.
I have also fixed various audio bugs.
I added a new meme into the game. Wonder if you can find it? (1B4B)
I also decided to lower the amount of clicks on the Tails OS and removed irrelevant announcements about a possible bug in the part of the game which has also been fixed.

Voice assistant update coming later this summer. As well as thunderale, a mini game pre-installed in Tails OS (shh it will be an easter egg)

About the translations...
Translations seemed to be very important, but I noticed that not many people from non english speaking countries have got the game. Therefore I have decided to postpone Polish, German, Ukrainian, Japanese and French translations.
The translations that are coming soon are:
Russian, Turkish, Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese

Patch size: ~10MB

Diver out!
