How do you disable scroll wheel zoom?

  • I would like to disable scroll wheel zoom, the feature where you hold down the Option key and scroll to zoom in or out.

    Whenever I switch tabs using the ⌘⌥→ or ⌘⌥← keyboard shortcuts, the "inertia" left behind from a recent scroll action (on OS 😵 can cause the page to zoom in unintentionally.

  • This is system feature, not the browser.

  • I have the same problem. When I want to switch between tabs by command-option-arrowkeys and then scroll the page zooms in or out unintentionally
