Number of icon rows on home screen

Hi, I'm using BB 9790 with version 7.1. Up until a week ago there was an option under the Home Screen Preference that allowed you to set the number of icon rows - which I had previously set to 3 rows.

However, for the past few days, the number of rows on the home screen is defaulting to 2 rows which takes up most of the screen.

Upon investigation, this option to set the number of rows no longer appears under the Home Screen Preference. I did find an option under Accessibility called Home Screen Grid Layouts - but this only has options for number of Columns & not Rows.

Where is the option to set the number of rows or is it possible to set the default from 2 rows to 1 row?

Best regards
