Details

Ok; bit of a subjective one this, but here goes.

When viewing a *long* page of text/html, zooming in, say two steps (Cntl++) will
cause you to lose your position down the page. One may have to scroll two or
three pages to refind your position in the text.

HOWTO REPRODUCE / TESTCASE
==========================

1) Go to http://lartc.org/HOWTO//cvs/2.4routing/output/2.4routing-15.html ( it's
a long page).
2) Scroll half way down the page.
3) Highligh a line of text (this is just to mark where you are).
4) Zoom in a few times (Cntl++.
5) Scroll up/down to the line that you highlighted.
6) Notice how far you have to scroll to get back to your original position in
the text.

EXPECTED RESULT
===============
The (highlighed line / line you are viewing) should remain midway down the screen.

zooming by Cntl++ does resonable zooming

Summary: zooming loses scroll position → Text Zoom loses scroll position
As bz pointed out in the dup, this might depend on bug 60307, "Images loading
above top of window can cause scrolling up".

See also bug 139832 (for resizing windows), which suggests an approximate method
of getting the right scroll position that involves keeping the scroll percent
rather than the number of pixels.
