By Default, Ctrl - MouseWheel Scroll dont Zoom
    (I see we can change thru Edit > Preferences) 


Step:-
1. press ctrl and do mouse wheel roll forward
2. press ctrl and do mouse wheel roll backward


Result:-
Nothing happen

Expected:-
page should do Zoom/Unzoom
No longer depends on: 483726
I'm not sure how to enable this, but it's pretty annoying now it's gone as I find myself trying to use it about 5 times a day
To follow in follow in Firefox and other browser's footsteps I suggest that this Zooming using CTRL+Mouse wheel become Seamonkey's default behavior.

Biju is correct however, that this can be manually turned on via 

Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Mouse Wheel > Ctrl tab > Zoom the page in or out.

Never the less, this should be the default.

What is the default in Firefox 4.0b11?
Ratty, the default behavior unless it has been changed in the last few days has been that CTRL+Scroll Wheel zooms the page.

I suppose I will download latest nightly and check it out again.
Firefox does this:
// 0=lines, 1=pages, 2=history , 3=text size
pref("mousewheel.withcontrolkey.action",3);
ref:
  Bug 401322 - missing "Text Size" zoom feature, Full page zoom should be an option not replacement
  Bug 401297 - document the new full zoom UI
    (Ctrl+Scroll up (mousewheel) now zooms *in* instead of decreasing the text size.)

pref("mousewheel.withcontrolkey.sysnumlines",false);
pref("mousewheel.withcontrolkey.numlines",1);
ref:
  Bug 314250, modifier key mappings for scroll wheels are bad. New mappings on Mac: ctrl=size, option=history, meta=line
Whiteboard: parity-firefox
Add the mousewheel controlkey prefs to match Firefox:
> +pref("mousewheel.withcontrolkey.action",3);
> +pref("mousewheel.withcontrolkey.sysnumlines",false);
> +pref("mousewheel.withcontrolkey.numlines",1);
