i have signed up for Mozilla and I cannot change the order of the emails. All my other email apps have the most recent emails at the top of each box.. please advise me how to do this. there is NO option to re-order this way under the drop-down menus to the far right above the scroll bar. why not? please advise me how to do this. Having newest emails on the bottom of a huge list of old emails is not efficient or usable.

The easy way to sort is clicking the column headers. Click any header to sort on that column. Click that same header a second time to reverse the sort. A small pointer appears on the header that you are sorting on and it points in the direction of the sort.

So in your case click the header labeled DATE. Click DATE a second time to reverse the sort order.
