From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010913 BuildID: 2001091303 In the page at http://www.gnu.org/manual/bash/html_mono/bashref.html, go to the bottom of the page and click on the link for "word splitting". Once it takes you to that link hit the "back" button. You will be taken back to the previous page, but the vertical scroll bar will be all the way at the top of the page. I believe the correct behavior should place the vertical scroll bar at the bottom of the page where the original link was. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.gnu.org/manual/bash/html_mono/bashref.html 2. Scroll to the bottom of the page. 3. On the bottom of the page is a link called "word splitting". Click on it. 4. You should be taken to the link. 5. Click on the back button in the browser. 6. Thus the bug- The browser will return to the top of the page and not to the bottom. Actual Results: After hitting the back button, mozilla went to the top of the previous page. Expected Results: I expected mozilla to take me to the bottom of the page (when I hit the back button) because that is where I originally was at when I clicked the link called "word splitting". For comparison Internet Explorder 5 in Windows 2000 works just as I have stated in the above "expected results" section.
