Minefield refuses to remember scroll positions above an arbitrary threshold (on certain pages)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090507 Minefield/3.6a1pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090507 Minefield/3.6a1pre When switching back to a tab loaded with a certain page, after launching a link off that page, the browser automatically scrolls down to a certain arbitrary position and will not remember any scroll position higher than that position. It will, however, remember scroll positions lower than that arbitrary position. This is a regression as follows: Works properly (remember any position): Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090505 Minefield/3.6a1pre ID:20090505041741 Fails (scrolls down): Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090506 Minefield/3.6a1pre ID:20090506045618 I suspect Bug 67752 may be the culprit Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit the linked URL 2. Pause the video and scroll down till you see the "View all 21 comments" link 3. Middle-click "View all 21 comments" to open in a new tab. 4. Scroll the video page all the way back up. 5. Switch to the new tab from Step 3 6. Switch back to the tab containing the video. 7. Notice that the page scrolled down by itself

Duplicate of bug 491842, maybe?
It's not scrolling down to an arbitrary position; it's scrolling down just far enough to put that link you clicked at the bottom of the viewport. :) In any case, this is a duplicate of bug 491842 (and the patch there fixes the issue). I really appreciate the clear steps to reproduce; they made it very easy to check what's going on and to test it against several test builds here!
