Somehow, my daughter was able to CENTER Facebook pages in Firefox. That's the only website that is affected. How do I UNCENTER or set to default settings?

If you have increased the minimum font size then try the default setting "none" as a high value can cause issues like you described.

  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > Minimum Font Size (none)
  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"

You can use an extension to set a default font size and page zoom on web pages:

Thank you! It worked with the minimum font size - resetting it to "none". Now I have the problem where the Friends List on the right is gone. Is there a way to bring that back now?

As with anything in my house, things happen for the worst, then people forget about them, then they mysteriously fix themselves. My wife said that she opened her computer yesterday and VOILA!!! The list of "friends" was on the right side where it was supposed to be. I ain't go a clue what happened, but she is back in business and I'm still confused... even more so now. I definitely appreciate your input and have copied it to WORD for a future reference! Thanks again everyone!
