hello when searching from www.google.com, using 100 search results per page.

i will scroll down the page, find a hit worth looking at, right click on it to open it in a new tab, and then immediately the search result page will jump back to the top.

whereupon i will have to again scroll down to where i was to look a subsequent search results :-(
