I want to change the ownership of a document. I have followed the instructions that are in the help section in Drive.  They say the following

Change the owner of a file or folder
You will only see this setting option if you're the current file owner. The person you want to transfer ownership to must already be invited to the file. You can only transfer ownership of Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Forms.

Go to or a Docs, Sheets, or Slides home screen.
Select a file or folder.
In Google Drive: at the top, click Share .
In Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides: In the top right, click Share.

At the bottom right of the "Share with others" window, click Advanced.
Next to the name of the person you want to make the owner, click the Down arrow .

From the list, select Is owner.
Click Save changes.

However, when I click the down arrow as it suggests, there is not a choice that says owner.  It just says, view, comment, or edit.

I am the current file owner.  I have added the person who I want to share this file with and they have opened the file and saved it to their drive.   

What am I doing incorrectly, or are they other things that I should be doing?    Thanks.

I love Google Drive and have been using it successfully on Firefox.  I recently uploaded a lot of files using my laptop computer into a file folder I created on my Google Drive. That file folder had PDF documents, 2 sub file folders with Audio and another sub file folder with Video   

I switched over to my desktop computer and went to Google Drive and opened up the same folder.  Nothing was there.  Everything in that folder was gone.  

After signing in and out of Google and even rebooting my computer I went to my tablet and opened up Drive and the same folder and everything was there.  Now really confused.

I went back to my desktop and opened up Google Drive using Chrome.  Low and behold when I opened up the folder, everything was there.  

What is going on?   Is it a problem with Firefox or with Google Drive working with Firefox?

HELP ! ! !
