If I have followed a URL with an anchor and I then follow a link and return back again, Mozilla will lose track of where I was on the page - I will always end up at the top of the page, having to reload the page or manually my previous position. If I had followed the same link from a non-anchored URL Mozilla would have returned to my previous position. Seen in Mozilla Firebird/0.6-20030429 and Mozilla 1.4b-20030502 on Linux, and Mozilla 1.4b-20030502 on Windows 98. I think this is a quite recent regression. Netscape 7.02 doesn't have this annoying behaviour. Instructions on how to reproduce the bug will be posted in a comment.
How to reproduce: 1) Follow this link: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=204366#c0 2) Scroll down as far as possible. 3) Now follow this link: <http://www.mozilla.org/> and go back to the previous page (using the back button or equivalent). 4) Note where the browser returns to. Expected result: The browser should return exactly to where I was before following the link to another page. Actual result: The browser returns to the top of the page. The problem is 100 % reproducible.
