Due to the new Mac OSX scroll feature on their touchpad (not sure if same with magic mouse), it keeps on scrolling for a little while after you let go. In Firefox, if you quickly change tabs using the keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+tab, or ctrl+shift+tab), it changes the zoom level, as if you have pressed cmd(with)+ or cmd(with)- to get it back, the only way is to use cmd+0 each time to set back to default.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have more than web page open (in tabs)
2.Flick the touchpad to scroll down the page
3.Quickly use the keyboard shortcut to change tab (ctrl+shift+tab or ctrl+shift)
4.Sometimes it will only be the original tab, sometimes both tabs that have changed zoom level.
Actual Results:  
It changed the zoom level to smaller after scrolling down and changing tab with ctrl+shift+tab

Expected Results:  
Not changed zoom level and just changed tab.
This bug is a duplicate of bug #562413 (but it seems I can't mark it so).
