Build ID: 20130116073211

Steps to reproduce:

I visit a page from another page and the anchor is found.

Actual results:

If I reopen a visited page after having once visited it using an anchor, I am taken to the top of the that page, not to the anchor. I suspect that because the page has been cached, the browser simply brings up the page and ignores the anchor 

Expected results:

Each time I visit a page, I should be taken to the requested anchor on the page, even if I have visited that page before. For example: Actors - Ježek, Jaroslav. 1906-1942 [Jezek, Jaroslav] (see Musicians - Ježek, Jaroslav. 1906-1942.) takes me to the correct anchor the first time, but if I return to the calling page, the second time I click on the link I am taken to the top of the page. Calling page attached; I did not see a way to attach more than one file. The called page is: www.czechout.org/m.htm.

The call is:
     <a class="ref" href="m.htm#A651-10">Musicians - Ježek, Jaroslav. 
The anchor is:
    <a name="A651-10">- Ježek, Jaroslav. 1906-1942</a>
Hope this helps - you have a fine product!

(but there are a few fixed bugs concerning overflow: hidden, e.g. bug 811301)
Mark could you verify if you still have that problem?

Yes. I checked it again today. The same problem exists. I answered this several days ago, but for some reason my answer is not here. Sorry. I am traveling, so difficult to get on regularly.

Thank you for taking time to report this.
Are you still able to reproduce this in the latest version ? I cannot reproduce in the current version.

It is not reproducible. Closing this as works for me.
Please feel free to reopen this bug if it still reproduces in the latest versions. Thanks
