Go forward and backward with scrollwheel in Firefox

By now, you know that by pressing Apple (Cmd) and scrolling with the scroll wheel on your mouse you can change the font size in your browser. You also know that by pressing CTRL and scrolling you can Zoom in and out your screen.

So, what does Alt (Option) and scrolling does than? Yes, you guessed right. It moves you back and force in your navigation history. Pretty cool if you need to go back several pages quickly.

To go back and forth in windows it is SHIFT + ALT + SCROLL WHEEL.

...because I need CTRL + CMD/Apple+ scroll to change font size in Firefox, and ALT/Option + scroll does nothing.

Can't you just use CMD + +/- to alter font size in FF OS X?

The zooming is performed by OSX not Firefox. It works with all applications.
