I am not sure if this is a Firefox problem or an Ebay one. I am a volunteer seller for a charity and when I click on one listing to check, then return to the main list to click on the next item the page re-adjusts upwards and I click on the wrong item. I notice it most on Ebay because I am using it so much, and because it causes annoying interruptions, but it has happened with other pages. Has anyone else had this problem? and if so, how does one stop it happening - it is driving me crazy.

Try to open links in a new tab with a middle-click instead of in the current tab.
Then you can close that tab to return to that page.
