Possible to maintain scroll position after Ctrl+F5?
When I do a full page reload (Ctrl+F5), it scrolls up to the top of the page. Chrome, for instance, maintains the scroll position. Is the behavior I am seeing in Firefox hardcoded or did I maybe just messed up my settings somehow? Is there a way to maintain a scroll position after Ctrl+F5?

I think that is hardcoded, because it does the same for me too.
With Ctrl+F5 you bypass the cache and reload all file fresh from the server. This resets settings like the cursor position and data that you're entered in a form and check boxes. I finds this convenient as I can reload forum index pages and start at he top of the list. I use F5 if I want to keep the scroll position.
I'll probably file and improvement request and hopefully this will find its way into Firefox.
