I find the most useful are Ctrl + or - to increase or decrease the font size.

If you keep the curser inside the dialogue box, but it can be disconcerting if the curser goes outside.

Sorry, I wrote rubbish there. What I meant to say is:

It doesn't happen if you keep the curser inside the dialogue box, but it can be disconcerting if the curser goes outside.

Forgot to say that if you use Ctrl + mouse wheel you can reduce or enlarge text in FF depending on wheel's direction.

"It doesn't happen if you keep the curser inside the dialogue box..."

Oh, yes it does!

On a few occasions recently, when typing a message on this site, I have had to enter the apostrophe in another text editor and paste it in. Otherwise, there is simply no way to continue typing unless apostrophes are dropped. And that is NOT going to happen!

No problem here :)

It doesn't if it's in a box like this one, or the address bar, but if i click off a text box it does appear, which is fine anyway. I'm using the latest version of Firefox but I've been using it more or less from the beginning and never had trouble with the apostrophe.

Same here.
