Can't verify Sync. Get no JavaScript error.

I've had a working Firefox sync for a little while. I decided that I want to use a different email address so I delete my account from computer and continue to make a new one. When asked to verify, I go to the link and I get a page that says Firefox accounts need JavaScript. I tried opening this link in different browsers and on my phone but same error. Can't get my account verified. Maybe its not important, but my first account was just a forwarding address to what I set my new account email. I.e. my old address was <name>@<domain>.com and my address is <name>@<domain>.ch, the .com forwards to the .CH. Maybe the confuses Firefox sync? And JavaScript is definitely not disabled. I checked aboutconfig.

I updated to the latest FF last night and now all the bookmarks on my desktop are called "Firefox". This should not happen, but anyway, what can I do to fix this, please? I have a lot of bookmarks: some in created folders. I can name/rename the folders, but inside, all bookmarks are still called "Firefox"

Any help appreciated. I use the bookmarks a lot.

Zoom out factor is too restrictive.: Firefox for Android renders some complex sites designed for Desktop poorly, Feedly (https://feedly.com/) for example. The problem is there just too many things should be displayed but I cannot zoom out freely because Firefox doesn't allow me to zoom out that much. I've set

zoom.minPercent = 1 browser.ui.zoom.force-user-scalable = true

However, it seems there are other rules that prevent me zoom out more, it is far from the 1%. The attached images are the smallest zoom factor Firefox allowed. I'm using OnePlus One, which has a 5.5" 1080p display.

Please relax the zoom factor if you cannot render all websites well.

Images on web pages load initially (usually) but then some turn black if the page is reloaded or if switching between tabs. Will also happen with pictures at bottom of pages on initial load. Sometimes the pictures will display normally again after scrolling, but not always. Happens when single tab is open, multiple tabs are open, and both in and out of private mode. Started in version 34 or 35, still happening in 36.

In most ways I'm happy with Firefox, but it does this neat trick where every time I hit my home button, it pops up the search function. I have never used that function. I didn't use it when google decided I no longer needed my home screen, I just deleted the app. If Mozilla also thinks I don't need my home screen, I'll just delete that app too. My phone is a Samsung galaxy s5 active. I tried clearing the default app next to Firefox, so that's a useless tip.
