'I just downloaded Firefox in an attempt to break away from Google stranglehold (I also switched to Protonmail and DuckDuckGo). My issue is that I was unaware that there is an autozoom feature with FF. While for some people this is probably a godsend, for me it is slowly, but surely, driving me crazy.

I have searched for the answer online but have not found the solution ... please tell me that there is a way to shut this feature off

I have never seen such a feature in Firefox for Windows or Linux. I doubt that MacOS is different. I suggest that you try starting Firefox in troubleshoot mode. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/diagnose-firefox-issues-using-troubleshoot-mode https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems

You may be using a combination of a key plus the mouse scroll. I don't know what that combination is on MacOS. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly
