Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432348
Scroll wheel text zooming works the opposite of all other apps
Last modified: 2018-04-11 11:25:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Text zooming with the mousse wheel (scroll) in Epiphany works in the opposidte
direction than in the other FF / gecko applications, for example Lifeera, Miro
and so on. To zoom IN text on Liferea one shuold press CTRL + Scroll down, to do
the same in epiphany one should press CTRL + scroll up. It should be the same in
all applications using web rendering engnie so that the user get consistent
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Zoom text in epiphany window using CTRL + mouse wheel.
Scroll down should zooms the text out
Scroll + CTRL should act consistently in all applications, either change it in
all other apps (like Miro, Liferea and so on) or change it in epiphany
I personally prefer the way it works in Epiphany, scroll UP shuold zoom in and
scroll down should decrease the text size but probably it is better to follow
all other apps
If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest updates for this
Fedora Core release, please file a bug report in the the upstream bugzilla
located at http://bugzilla.gnome.org in the Epiphany product.
Once you've filed your bug report to the upstream bugzilla, if you paste the new

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.
Thanks in advance.
It seem to be fixed in epiphany-2.22.2-1.fc9.i386
