I have a Mircosoft Digital Media Pro keyboard which has a slider on it for zooming in and out. On Firefox 1.0.X it worked perfectly (it actually changes the text size), now that I have upgraded to 1.5 its backwards, is there any way to fix this?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox
2. Go to any website
3. Slide zoom slider up or down (to change text size on website)

Actual Results:  
Sliding the zoom slider up is supposed to zoom in (Increase test size), but it zooms out. and Vice Versa.

Expected Results:  
Slide up = zoom in = increase text size.
Slide down = zoom out = decrease text size.

Using Microsoft Intellitype Pro 5.3 software/drivers.

Same results using:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060422 Minefield/3.0a1
Micorosft Ergo Keyboard 4000, IntelliType Pro 5.5 Software

Zoom in all other programs work properly for me, so I expect such behaviour with all types of devices having Zoom function.

I can confirm this. Using Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 the zoom slider works backwards. Pressing Zoom-in actually zooms out and pressing Zoom-out actually zooms in. In all other applications this works properly.

Driver details:
IntelliType Pro
version 5.30.606.0
Driver date: 15.3.2005

Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
