Hello,

I have a website with a summary and different chapters.

I use <a id=#SOM-XX" href="#XX"> and <a id="XX" href="#SOM-XX"> tags to allow users to go back and forth between the titles of the contents and the chapters and sub-chapters. Until recently this worked well.

Since an undetermined date, on Firefox, after a first back and forth between summary and chapters, the links from the summary do not refer exactly to the chapter concerned, but slightly higher... Smiley rolleyes The phenomenon is amplified as one chooses a chapter close to the end, for example the 5th.

Try it for yourself: https://blog.patrick-kiri.mq/2019/02/connaissances-et-orientations-patrick_15.html#lapasfc

On the other hand, everything works normally on Chrome.

How to correct this problem?

For those who can be interested, I solved the problem by using this code:


(() => {

 document.querySelectorAll('a[href^="#"]').forEach((elem) => {
   elem.addEventListener('click', (e) => {
     //e.preventDefault();          
     // location.href = elem.getAttribute('href');
     
     var h = elem.getAttribute('href').replace('#', );

        
     //var top = document.getElementById(h).offsetTop; //Getting Y of target element
     //window.scrollTo(0, top); 
     document.getElementById(h).scrollIntoView(); 
   });
 });

})()
