I sometimes bookmark a web page after partially reading the content. When later clicking the bookmark, I want to see the page displayed from the top. Easy fix?

Hi LAM9, your browser reported itself as Waterfox (support) and there may be important differences from Firefox. My comments are based on Firefox.

Does the bookmark "location" (address) have a hash on it? That may direct Firefox to scroll to a certain point in the page after loading.

Here's an example:

To check the location of the bookmark:

right-click the bookmark > Properties

Second input box should have the address.

Can you please clarify what exactly you want to do?

Just a side note, the version of Windows you have is no longer supported by Microsoft, nor is it supported by Mozilla any longer. Please update to Windows 7 or 10, buy a new computer, or switch to linux, as that computer is not safe on the web

jscher2000, Thank you! Brilliant! A simple fix to remove the hash and everything after it. You wouldn't believe how much time I've wasted searching for that solution.
