Until the update to V36.01, I used scroll(0,0) in an href as a link to the top of the page - which worked fine. It no longer works for me. Any ideas?

Chosen solution

Do you mean like this:

<a href="javascript:scroll(0,0)">To Top</a>

It seems this should still be supported, per MDN: https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/API/Window/scroll

Does it make any difference if you use:

<a href="javascript:window.scroll(0,0)">To Top</a>

or to separate your event handler from the HTML:

<a href="#" onclick="window.scroll(0,0); return false;">To Top</a>

You could try #top instead if you only need to scroll to the top.

Did you check the Web Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer) for error messages?
