Details

I invite the community to discuss the eligibility of a new enhancement that allows Firefox to scroll automatically to the original position of the page when the user performs zoom-in/zoom-out.

Example Steps to Reproduce:

1. Navigate to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox
2. Scroll down to a particular place.
3. Zoom-in the page.

Actual results:

The page is zoomed, but the user has to scorll to the right position again to continue reading. This would be a tedious task if the page is too long. User has to either,
1. Manually scorll to the right position again.
OR,
2. Before zooming, copy a fraction of the currently reading text, zoom, and then paste the text into the search text box.

Expected results:

I invite the community to build up a discussion pertaining to this enhancement. As a first measure, the following is suggested and is open for discussion.

-Add a new checkbox in Firefox Preferences for auto scrolling when zooming. When enabled, Firefox will auto scroll to the original place when the user performs zoom-in/zoom-out.
