I work with text a lot in the browser. In Chrome, I can select a piece of text, then press Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrow to select paragraphs above or below the selected text. Also in Chrome, I can press Ctrl+up/down arrow to move the text cursor one paragraph above or one paragraph below when I type. But in FireFox, the combination ctrl+up/down arrow duplicates home and end. Tell me how can I assign actions to these keyboard shortcuts to work with paragraphs?

language - not possible to remove or change

I use Firefox on mac OS 11.5.2 and the system language is English so is the main display language in Firefox (so I see File - Edit-View etc. on top in English) However whenever I try to print something or save a page the window that opens up is in Turkish. I tried to change this from preferences -> setting-> general -> language (which shows English US as default with Turkish as the second on the list) but the "remove" button is not active.

The info on Firefox Troubleshooting Information page is like this: (not sure if it is because of one of these)

Internationalization & Localization Application Settings Requested Locales ["en-US"] Available Locales ["en-US","tr"] App Locales ["en-US","tr"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Default Locale "tr" Operating System System Locales ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"]

I also tried from Mac System Preferences -> Language&Region -> Apps I tried to add Firefox and select the language but language selection is not active (in gray "System Default-Turkish" is written and the message under that says Firefox doesn't support additional languages. For other apps like Word etc. system default language shows as English no problem.

Thank you

The "Compact" option under the "Density" selection for the "Title Bar" in "More Tools/Customize Toolbar" should be reinstated. The reason provided, that the selection was too difficult to find, doesn't warrant removal. Rather it indicates that the selection should be made easier to find. Further, there should be a general mechanism that makes ALL bars at the top of the page easier to resize. I believe that for most people, smaller is better because it provides more space for the page content, especially important as screen sizes shrink.

After the update that changed the bookmarks menu spacing in the most unhelpful way, I have reduced this stupid double padding between the folders with a hack - an now with the current update to 91.0.2 - it is back on!!???

Whose idiotic idea it was without giving us the OPTION of single OR double padding??

Why do we have to look online for the hacks and workarounds to remove this most idiotic and controlling change??

Please bring the single padding back NOW or I will completely switch to Chrome or simply will stop updating firefox!

You will NOT control how many folders and bookmarks I can see in my top menu bookmarks - and this idiotic double padding has removed half of them from my menu!!!

I use on Ubuntu Linux (90.0.02). When you do a "find' on a page (ctrl-F) the bar appears at the bottom of the screen and you enter the text and search. But then, if you want to get rid of it, the "X" is all the way over to the right and there is no way to scroll the screen to get over to it. I have to move the whole Firefox browser way over to the left, and then resize the window really wide to the right in order to get to that "X". Shouldn't there be a better way to do that? Thanks
