Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

Internet string 40:
To temporarily increase the size of text on a web page, press <menuchoice><guimenuitem>View</guimenuitem><guimenuitem>Text Size</guimenuitem><guimenuitem>Increase</guimenuitem></menuchoice>. Alternatively, hold down the <keycap>Ctrl</keycap> key and scroll down with your mouse's scroll wheel, or press <keycombo><keycap>Ctrl</keycap><keycap>+</keycap></keycombo>.

This is no longer correct for current version og firefox

Looks like a documentation bug rather than a problem with implementation.

It _is_ the intended behaviour that the whole page scales with the scroll wheel.

In Firefox 2, only the text scaled and the menu layout was as in the description of the docs, i Think it is just a case of the docs not being updated as the software was.
Firefox is fine and the docs should be updated, that's why I reported the issue in the docs and not firefox ;)

Hi Alison, thanks for your patch - it looks good. I tweaked it just a bit to mention that it is scroll up (not scroll down) and added in the usage of CTRL+0 to reset the page size. I've committed your fix to the Lucid dev branch, rev. 449. I've assigned the bug to you for the record (credit where credit is due!). I hope you consider submitting further patches to the docs.
