I bought a new computer that has a smaller screen. Firefox seems to be configured for the larger screen and much of the information is off to the side. If I zoom out, I cannot see what is on the screen. How do I get Firefox configured to the screen?

The Display and now the Browser setup is based on Video Chipset it doesn't control the display resolutions. You will have to check the video settings for resolutions issues if that is display problems.

Chrome is fine. Firefox (which I use the most) is the only problem.

Screenshot of the issue? Also did you disable hardware acceleration to see if that isn't a cause.

Try to rename/remove xulstore.json in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed.

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
