Steps to reproduce:

-I have an Nvidia Shield, the stock ROM version 4.3 Jellybean has a virtual cursor mapped to the right analog stick.  This is used for navigating web pages on the controller.
-Move the right analog stick left/right/up/down.  Up/down causes the screen to zoom in and out.

Actual results:

Using Firefox Android 25, using the right analog stick does not move the mouse cursor, it causes the screen to zoom in and out due to Bug fix 855783.  Give me a setting or detection so that the right stick is disabled for zooming in and out on the Nvidia Shield.

Expected results:

The right stick should be disabled from zooming so the user can navigate web pages using the virtual mouse included with  Nvidia's stock ROM.

Instead, the left and right analog triggers on the Nvidia Shield could be updated to have the zooming feature added.  I will add the keys from the Left and Right Triggers and also the Right analog stick if I can find them later.

I like to use the Shield right trigger as the virtual mouse button, so there should also maybe be an option to hold down the left trigger and zoom with the right stick.
Kats, is it possible to rebind these manually?

No, the user cannot rebind these manually. It will require a code change.
