Scroll position is lost on Twitter when clicking a tweet and then back
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140507030202 Steps to reproduce: * Open a Twitter page using the new profile e.g. https://twitter.com/FirefoxNightly * Click on a tweet to show the detailed view * Hit backspace or the back button Actual results: The page is scrolled to the top. Expected results: The scroll position should be retained. This works in IE11 and Chrome 34.
Confirmed 32.0a1 (2014-05-11), Win 7 x64

IE11 doesn't work for me (Chrome works).
I now get the the same behavior in IE as in Firefox (thought it worked the last time I tried...) One thing I noted is that both IE and Firefox does do the scrolling but before the page content is changed. This is most notable if you click on a tweet with a long conversation. In IE you can even see the scrollbar jump to the bottom (if you have scrolled down a bit on the original page) before the page contents is updated.
I can reproduce this problem in Firefox 29 and even Firefox ESR 24. Chrome 35 restores the scroll position as expected.
Hi Daniel, I have tested this issue on the latest Firefox (44.0.2) release, latest Nightly (47.0a1) build and I could not reproduce it. I have followed your provided steps and when I hit backspace, the scroll position is retained. Same behavior on Chrome and IE. Firefox :44.0.2, Build ID: 20160210153822 User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 Firefox: 47.0a1, Build ID: 20160215030213 User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0 Can you please test this on the latest Firefox release (44.0.2) or latest Nightly (47.0a1, https://nightly.mozilla.org/) and tell me if this still reproduces ? When doing this please use a new fresh Firefox profile, maybe also in safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems). Thanks, Cosmin.
Hi, I can no longer reproduce it either. I suspect Twitter fixed it on their side, but anyway the issue is gone :)
Hi, Thanks for the reply. Considering this I will close this issue as Resolved - WFM.
