If you minimize the window, for me I logon to and goto the finance
page, on the left side I see the daily stats on Dow, NDX and so fourth.  I
minimize the window so that it is centered on the left side in a small window. 
I click refresh and all of a sudden it goes backup to the top of the window. 
Meaning it does not remember where the scroll bar was....  In IE I can do this
without a problem.  For me Id like to switch completely over to firefox, yet I
cant when I need to minimize a window.

Thank you very much for the creation and Ideas involved with firefox, with time
I think this will help the community VERY much.

3. hit refresh

Actual Results:  
Different viewing area in minimized window
