The first question to ask yourself is "Was it ever right?" Limit screws don't move by themselves so, if it was ever right, "screwing" with the limit screws will only screw up your derailleur adjustment even worse.

Front derailleurs are often more difficult to get adjusted than rears. There are a number of possible adjustments and among the most problematic is the position of the derailleur on the seatpost. I agree with Al1943. Go to parktool.com and follow their step-by-stem instructions starting with the position of the derailleur on the seatpost. Be sure to do the steps in order because each one can affect the subsequent steps.
