Hi, I would like to know how I can change the screen from portrait mode to landscape mode on a laptop. I assume this is done in the browser? There is an answer to this question from 2014, but that answer does not work anymore (I tried it). All the other answers seem to be for mobile devices. I would like to fit a certain amount of text from a website on one page. This is difficult in portrait mode. I am forced to zoom out to 50%, and it is then difficult to read the text. This is because I need to fit all the text on one page, for a screenshot. Please note that I don't want to switch permanently to landscape. I just want landscape for one website. So it should preferably be easy to switch back and forth between portrait and landscape. I have looked for this setting in my computer, and I can't find it. Sorry if this is a dumb question. But I have been unable to find the answer myself.

When assigning multiple actions to a email filter, what is the policy if one of the actions fails? Does it continue to try the next action, or does the filter stop? For example, I have a filter configured to match all emails from user@company.com, and the first action is to forward it to myself@different.address.com, and then delete the email. If the forward fails because it can't reach the Outgoing SMTP server, will it skip that action and proceed to delete the email, or will it stop when the forward action fails?

I have a couple dozen events, all recurring multiple times per week. Whenever I want to dismiss or snooze any of the reminders, it takes 2-4 seconds to actually do so (long enough to make me impatient every time). How do I speed this up to, say, 200 ms or less?

Note: I only have 16 GiB of memory, a 7200 RPM 1 TiB HDD, and an 8-core 4 GHz AMD FX, so I can certainly see why it might take Lightning a little while to write a few KiB to disk. I just think multiple seconds is maybe a bit too long.

When I use my McAfee anti-virus full protection software to remove trackers, all trackers are removed from my browsers (Microsoft edge, chrome, etc) except for Mozilla Firefox. I always have 222 trackers not removed from my Firefox browser after every cleaning. Gosh even chrome does a better job than Mozilla Firefox. This is getting really creepy. Anyone's assistance will be greatly appreciated.
