There's more...

zstyle ':completion:*' menu select=1 interactive

The last one is really interesting, although I experience the same
(1) problem as described and presented here:
(2) blocks tab from going into menu selection (one have to use arrows),
(3) doesn't start again after using arrows,
so I won't use this.

Thanks a lot for new ideas:) It took me another 2 days to review
fzf-related projects  and I've ended up  with:

bindkey -M emacs '^f' fzf_completion	(from fzf-tab-completion)
bindkey -M emacs '^R' fzf-history-widget (fzf/shell/key-bindings.zsh)

These 2 seems reasonable and working well when called on purpose:
- fzf_completion to search for descriptions of "-- described" options,
- fzf-history-widget for convenience.

Other fzf completions seem disruptive for me and break my CLI flow,
making the work less smooth and effectively slower than pure zsh.
