Useful, but is it supposed to happen

I've been using Firefox for a few weeks now and reckon it is great.Except every now and again I notice the font gets bigger or smaller for no apparent reason. I've now realsied what is happening. I've got a 2-button mouse with a wheel in the middle. When I press CRTl to open a new tab I soetimes knock the wheeel. So, here is the trick. If you are on a page, hold CTRL and move the wheel on your mouse (well mine anyaway) you can make text bigger or smaller.

Yes that is one of the features of firefox.
If you click on help / help contents, you will see all the mouse & keyboard shortcuts.
