Irony of ironies. I had to create a new account (long, involved, esoteric route) to ask a question, and I could not use my username, because it already was taken (presumably by me ;)) I now have a new Mozilla support account, and the old one with the obsolete e-mail address presumably will sit there waiting for me until some auto-cleaning process eventually eliminates it for inactivity.

I've been using Firefox for a long time now and have never seen an issue like this before. http://prntscr.com/cac6o5 this is a picture from this web page http://www.ghacks.net/2016/06/07/firefox-47/ - Most pages seem to be squishing the fonts. I'm not sure what's going on, it just started doing this recently out of the blue. I'm not sure what else to say about the issue.

I'm using a fairly old version of Firefox, version 34.0.

If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it!

Colon near spacebar, why

Hello,

 Two questions/issues.
 When I use Firefox on my 7" Samsung tablet, and attempt to write (type) in the URL space, a colon appears just right of the space bar, where the spacebar usually is for all other typing purposes.  And so I find I'm constantly typing in ":" where a space is supposed to be.  And Firefox interprets this as I'm trying to invoke an app.  Makes me nuts!  1) Who's changing my keyboard for Firefox?  Is it Samsung or Firefox?  2) Any suggestions to stop this would be greatly appreciated, if you have one.
 Second question, a new android phone, I'd like to use Firefox on, but only see GooglePlay as the only place to download it.  Is it available anywhere else?
 Thank you for any info/advice/direction you may have.
