Hi all,

I was able to reproduce the same behavior with a different website, on the latest Nightly 68.0a1 (2019-04-08), on Beta 67.0b9, and on RC 66.0.2, with Huawei MediaPad M2 (Android 5.1.1) tablet.


  1. Go to and scroll to the last article.
  2. In the same tab open
  3. Tap back button.

The scroll position was reset for the webpage opened at step 1.

I observed the same behavior on Chrome. Not reproducible on desktop.
Is this the expected behavior for Firefox?
