From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011120 BuildID: 2001112007 If a link is clicked in the middle of the page, and the back button is pressed, the browser goes back to the beginning if the previous page and not to the point the browser window was at. Previous milestone releases did not exhibit this behavior. An example is that when a link is selected in the middle of an article at http://slashdot.org , Mozilla goes back to the begining of the article, when it should go back to the middle of the page where the link was originally selected. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.goto http://slashdot.org 2. Select any link that is halfway down the page or more, on either the main site or a subsection of slashdot 3. press the back button Actual Results: rather than going back to the original location on the page where the link was selected, it goes back to the top of the original page Expected Results: It should have gone back to the original location on the page where the link was selected. This build of mozilla was built from src.rpm on MDK 8.1. I believe this was reproduced on the win32 version, but I can not verify at this time. Prior builds did not experience this wrong behavior, and other websites do work properly.
For some reason this problem seems to occur on slashdot.org, but not on bugzilla.mozilla.org. Is this a dupe of bug 92820?
It is different from bug #92820. In that bug it is reproduced only when the page has not finished loading. In this one, it occurs after the page has finished loading. It seems something peculiar to Slashdot as I am unable to reproduce on other slash sites. Sorry, it can be reproduced from http://slashcode.com ,so it must be with newer versions of slash.
