How can I set up Firefox for a single vertical monitor?

I have a good 1080p monitor, which I can set up in either orientation. I have a hard time finding monitors which meet my accessibility needs, so a square/squarer monitor or a 2nd monitor would be expensive.

I have tried setting it up in vertical mode, to make it easier to read pdfs and to write. And ideally, to make it easier to avoid sidebars and/or move them away above the main content where they're less likely to trigger as many @##$% migraines.

I've noticed that most websites are designed for the horizontal layout. Elements disappear off the right edge, sometims with a horizontal scrollbar to reach them, sometimes without. Is there a trick to get miost or all websites to fit?

I use about:config fixes, add-ons, and user css to try to increase font sizes, switch colors, block animation, and reduce frame rates to completely block "smooth" animation. I can't do without these, so I don't think I could adapt the mobile version to my needs.

I've noticed *many* other problems in other apps, but if I can get all these websites working in Firefox, I can probably sort out the other problems elsewhere.

AFAIK that feature is mostly common in Word type software or scanner apps that use longitude screen layout. And most sites and software defaults to the horizontal layout-so unless there is a userChrome.css setup that changes the Browser layout the user will have to manually change the browser size to fit a longitude screen layout.

I'd stumbled across a series of sites that didn't fit, but other sites do fit.

I'm not sure what this means. Of course I change the window size to fit the screen size. I often get migraines from scrolling with smaller windows. Though not as many as from scrolling with @#$^$@ sidebars and other @$^# standard web design. But some pages just don't fit within the window, either because of @#$& sidebars, or headers which take too much horizontal space, or pictures.

Some websites have an adaptive design that adjust automatically to a smaller screen width while others assume that you use a 'modern' display that has enough screen width available (1024 or 1200 or even wider). Like you know from threads you opened in the past, there is usually no recipe available for all websites to suppress moving elements as in a lot of cases complex JavaScript or CSS is used what requires extensive investigation in case content blocking extensions aren't working or can't hide sidebars and other obtruding parts on webpages.
