Control+Shift+Z (Redo) Increases Font of Both TinyMCE and GUI

I couldn't find this thing already listed, so hopefully this isn't a duplicate. Although I'm curious why no one has reported on it yet, if nobody actually has.

This 'issue' causes WordPress to blow up the font when invoking the Redo function in the TinyMCE. I know Control+Y is the default Redo funtion (as opposed to Control+Z for Undo), but many applications today still use Control+Shift+Z to Redo. Regardless of that, I think the behavior that it shows is wrong nonetheless, because both the TinyMCE as well as the Graphical User Interface are affected by invoking this shortcut. Note that when switching to HTML view the font size has actually been increased as well. And unfortunately, this action CANNOT be undone (or undo'd w/e). See the attached screen capture for clues.

Although this is highly irritating, the fault lies in Firefox rather than WordPress.

Go to and press ctrl+shift+z - the same will happen.

It might be possible to override this by capturing the keys on the page, though I don't know if we should override browser shortcuts even if they are the most irritating 'features' ever.

Hmm you're right. I didn't know that.

Do you know why this happens in Firefox? I Googled it, but can't find any info on it.

After doing some research - looking through the browser menus for that shortcut... :) - I found that it is actually the Web Developer Toolbar which adds this shortcut. I also found that by pressing ctrl+shift+x you can undo it.

LOL, I have Web Developer Toolbar installed yes. Ctrol+Shift+X doesn't work for me though. It just right-aligns (as opposed to left-aligned) the text. Anyway, that doesn't matter, I'll just disable the plug-in when I don't need it. And maybe there's a way to disable the behavior in Web Developer Toolbar also.

Thanks for your help with this!
