Disable Smart Scroll zooming in Firefox Web Browsers
When Apple introduced smooth scrolling it conflicted with my use of the Control key in the shortcut to change Spaces. I would scroll down a page and then switch sSaces. This would cause the page to be zoomed in/out when I returned to Firefox. The following prevents this behavior:
  • Enter about:config in the Firefox address bar. Click to get through the warning page.
  • Search for mousewheel.withcontrolkey.
  • Set the mousewheel.withcontrolkey.action to 0.
  • Set the mousewheel.withcontrolkey.numlines to 0.
  • Ensure mousewheel.withcontrolkey.sysnumlines is false
You can find further documentation of the about:config page here.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described.]
