Steps to reproduce:
1. Switch keyboard layout to a Russian one.
2. Pressed Ctrl and +
Ctrl+- and ctrl+0 work, though.
what about ctrl-shift-and then the [=/+] key?
you use to have to hold shift to get a [+] but this was fixed, is this the cause?
if you pres the + key alone, do you get a "+", a "=" or something else?
Ctrl+Shift+= should work.
I know most users don't want to press Shift key for such case. l10n builds can avoid this issue only on the most major keyboard layout in the location. See bug 426501.
But it's odd, both English build and Russian build sets "=" as the alternative zoom in shortcut key. So, Ctrl+= should work as zoom-in.
Ctrl+Shift+= doesn't work.
By the way, we had this problem a few years ago: bug 429898.
This got broken quite recently, I believe.
Roman, can you try some previous Firefox versions to see when this started happening? Also, does this happen with any other locales?
this is a great tool to find out when this problem started: http://harthur.github.com/mozregression/
I will try, Anthony.
this happen with Thai locale too.

Ah, okay, I see the cause. Thanks for investigating the regression range.
This is a regression of bug 630810, only affects Fx15. So, this must be fixed.
Oops. Russian shouldn't be same bug. Roman R., are you exactly using the standard Russian keyboard layout which is installed by default? In other words, if your answer is YES, the Thai layout's problem is another bug. I need your confirmation.
Canceling my request for blocking 15. My investigation is wrong. And I cannot reproduce this bug on Thai layout too. That's strange.
Roman R. and Ekanan:
Are you using standard keyboard layout, I mean it's installed on Windows? Or are you using 3rd party keyboard layout include custom keyboard layout which is made by a tool?
Note that I tested:
* On Nightly (en-US) with Russian keyboard layout which is installed Windows7.
* On Nightly (en-US) with Thai keyboard layouts (both Kedmanee and Pattachote) which are installed Windows7.
* On Fx13 (ja-JP) with Russian keyboard layout.
* On Fx13 (ja-JP) with both Thai keyboard layouts.
Ctrl+Shift+= does work as Ctrl++ on Russian keyboard layout. The key is next to '-', the '-' key is next to '0'.
Ctrl+Shift+ๅ does work as Ctrl++ on Thai Kedmanee keyboard layout. The key is '1' in ANSI keyboard layout.
Ctrl+Shift+= does work as Ctrl++ on Thai Pattachote keyboard layout. The key is '1' in ANSI keyboard layout.

Ok, I misunderstood. sorry about that :(
On Thai keyboard I use Ctrl and ช (+/= key in English) rather than Ctrl and Shift and ๅ.
Since cset c9ce0e49040a I cannot use Ctrl and ช for zoom-in.

Thank you for your confirmation. *Currently*, the change is intentional. The key's native virtual keycode is OEM_PLUS. Before the changeset, Gecko cares it as '+' key always. But after it, Gecko checks whether '+' is inputtable by the key. I checked on IE9, the key combination works as Zoom-in, so, I think it must be fixed before Fx15 but other bug.
I'll file a new bug for the Thai keyboard layout case.
We need some replies from the reporter...
I use a layout DLL created by a third party. HOWEVER, I must add that this bug is NOT present in 16.0a1 (2012-06-16).
Then, this must be fixed by bug 759346.
