Firefox doesn't position within page to correct location.

Posted

I'm trying to position to a comment on a WordPress blog with a URL that ends "#location." Firefox positions within the document higher than it should. If I just put my cursor in the Address bar and press Enter, it positions correctly. Refresh puts it wrong again. I presume that the problem is Javascript on the page inserting things among the comments that Firefox doesn't take into account (probably the Ajax Edit Comments plug-in); however, both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome always position correctly.

This can also happen if there are images on the page that do not have the dimensions specified.

A good place to ask advice about web development is at the MozillaZine "Web Development/Standards Evangelism" forum.
