Ok so the question I was originally asking is why Firefox won't adjust to my computers Settings. For instance I have to Zoom to 150% to read my emails even though the minimum font size is set 20. So I went on the Help page and it kept giving direction do Refreshing the page, which I believe I've done before but the tutorial said they've changed the way it looks and where its at and unfortunately on my current, newest version, Firefox its nowhere. For starters, click on the 3 lines ie the Menu Bar on the right, good, then go down to Help, no Help listed in the Drop-Down Menu, No Troubleshooting, no More Tools? I am stuck? Ok under Share Data it says "safe-mode false" ?

I must have something set wrong on FireFox because my results of a Fold3 search will not go to the A-Z sort--it always stays on relevance. Fold3 search did go to the A-Z sort on Edge Browser so I'm hoping someone can tell me what I have set wrong on Firefox.

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?

Windows 10 x64 Pro Firefox 92.0

Is there a way to restore the appearance of Firefox Bookmarks to v88 or earlier? The extra space between each Bookmark is a pain and none of the "fixes" seem to work.

I am not up with messing around with css files to make things seem as they was.

I have Proton Colors Add-on and that supposed to make things look as they did before but they do not.

When Firefox updated to 91.0 I reinstalled v88 which was fine - apart from Firefox nagging me on a daily basis to update to 92.0 which I stupidly did.

Any suggestions please?

It looks like I'm not the only one. I want to make yahoo my search engine but it's no longer an option in FF tools. I don't like google but even Duck Duck Go, reverts to Google. What's going on? I know I can add Yahoo or DDG as an add-on but that brings me to yahoo's website. All I want is for the yahoo search engine which used to be in tools and is no longer there. I've been using the yahoo search engine for years and about 5 months ago or so, after an update it disappeared. Even though I have Duck Duck Go as my default search engine, doing a search it changes to google. Please don't shove google down our throats. BTW, restoring doesn't help and I use the search bar for searching, not the address bar.

Somehow I got hooked/tricked into changing the color scheme of my Firefox browser. I chose to add on Firefox Color and design my own, but now the drop down boxes (for Bookmarks, Tools, extended Toolbar) all have this ugly dark grey background with white-colored text, which I find REALLY unpleasant!!! I do not see how to switch the box color -- can you help?

Please review "jscher2000 posted an answer to your question 'FF 89.0 bookmarks'" in Mozilla Support Forum.

The "temporary fix" as provided was, indeed, temporary. about:config -- "browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled" change from "true" to "false."

It continued to work through update 91.0.2, but not with the latest iteration (92.0.1) It now appears I'm stuck with the new, not improved and not helpful bookmark format.

The "userChrome.css file" option is not one I'm willing to attempt. Why does Mozilla think it knows better than me what I want in a browser?

A new, and easier, fix will be deeply appreciated.
