Scrolling back on internet, page is on top again

Travel Forums System Talk Scrolling back on internet, page is on top again

When scrolling back through pages, the previous page always ends up at the top again so I have to scroll down the page again.

Can this be changed/fixed, as it's annoying and not usual.

Which browser / device / specific pages? In both Firefox and Chrome, both on the forum and in the wiki, if I scroll down a page, follow a link, scroll down that page, follow a link - and then hit the back button twice, both previous pages retain their original position.

The behaviour you describe can happen if you disable the cache of your browser, as remembering the position on a page is purely a function of your browser (travellerspoint does nothing special to enable - or disable - it), and it uses the cache for that. Otherwise I have no real idea what could be causing this. (Disable any extensions and check for malware?)

Thanks Sander,

I'll check tonight at home, but at work they are still using old IE8! Maybe that's the problem here.

Don't understand why they haven't upgrade till at least 9.
