If I increase Text Size (Ctl+'+') the "current" position on the page seems to be
completely lost.  Typically, I wind up at a point very far "up" the page from
where I was.

IMNSHO, the browser should record the source-position of, say, the upper left
corner of the display (or the middle - ANYTHING VISIBLE); then re-display with
the new text size beginning with the recorded source-position.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pick a long page -- www.groklaw.net has plenty of them!
2. Move down a few screens, make note of the currently-visible text;
3. Click Increase_Text_Size two or three times (make normal text appear about 16pt;
4. See how far you need to page down to relocate the original text.

Actual Results:  
The new text position was about half-way to the top from where I began.

Expected Results:  
The text originally visible at the top of the screen should _still_ be the text
visible at the top of the screen.
Is this the same as Bug 64926 or something different?
