How do I turn off zoom in/out feature? Can I lock it?

I keep accidentally zooming in or out, as I move my finger around the touch-pad to move the mouse. (I'm not holding control or anything, just trying to move the cursor. I don't want to zoom in/out.)

I just want to turn off this feature, since it causing me nothing but grief.

I was able to search and find out "ctrl+0" restores it back to the original/default zoom setting, but I would like to just be able to turn the zoom feature off.

You can set all the mousewheel.with*.action prefs to 0 to perform a scroll.

mousewheel.withnokey.action
mousewheel.withaltkey.action
mousewheel.withcontrolkey.action
mousewheel.withmetakey.action
mousewheel.withshiftkey.action

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the "Enter" key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.
