Hi hottop

Since we can't read minds :-) we need more troubleshooting details to help you:

  1. What model of Android tablet or phone are you using? What version of Android are you using (e.g. Jellybean 4.1-4.3, Kitkat 4.4, Lollipop 5.0, 5.1, etc)?
  2. What version of Firefox for Android are you using? (please try the latest version which is currently FF37.0.1)
  3. What did you do exactly, what happened and what did you expect? (details please! specifically what steps and what website led to "Firefox does not show a new webpage from the top. It starts automatically part way down the site.")

Cheers!

Hi, Thank you for your response. It seems to have stopped for now, but does happen from time to time consistently. I have the Galaxy s6, but this still happened on the Galaxy s3. Android 5.0.2 right now. I have the current firefox version as it shows no update is needed, but I cannot find the numerics of this version. It happens just when browsing to a new website. Not necessarily a new tab or anything, but whenever I go to another site such as TMZ, google news, etc, it will go to the page and I have to scroll up for me to start reading the page from the top. It happens instantly. I expected it to go to the website such as TMZ or Google news or any website and start at the top of the site as per usual. I am not sure what other details I can give, sorry. Thanks again.
