Since upgrading to Mountain Lion, I've had a problem with Smart Zoom. Using a Magic Mouse, I'm aware that it's a double tap to zoom in and another to zoom out. I actually like this feature and use it frequently enough that I don't want to have to turn it off to solve my problem.


The issue is that pages seemingly randomly zoom OUT and the text becomes very small. I do not know what gesture is doing this and it happens ALL the time. If I double tap, it zooms in, but it is the enlarged zoom in, as if I had done it from the normal text size. I have to hit cmd+0 to get it back to normal. It's become very annoying and I can't seem to find any info on it; everything out there is about zooming in, not out.
