That sounds like Firefox's font enlarge facility, not a whole page zoom. 
  That, and their minimum font size option, do break when people use 
absolute units.  For example, http://www.tfl.gov.uk/. This one was even 
worse when they were doing a usability survey, as simply overriding 
designer font sizes on IE's Accesibility dialogue pushed the links 
outside of their overflow none popup, so I couldn't complain about the 
messed up layout without restoring the smaller than default fonts.
