I don't know that you can, I'm not sure but think it's built into the browser. Have you checked your mouse properties to see what they are set at ?

The only other thing I could suggest is don't scroll the mousewheel while holding the Ctrl button

No options to set it in any browser, or at Control Panel > Mouse > Wheel.

It's not built-in in the browser, but Windows itself. Try it it just works a bit different.

Yes, these are my desktop icons completely zoomed out XD

If you have Logitech SetPoint installed, you can set the Scrolling Size window to none, and it will do what you want.
