Hello! When I working with developing web pages I testing some element in the middle or bottom of page. Then, when I edited some css files I need refresh page - to see changes in frontend. When I do it in Chrome - it scrolling page to same position automatically. But in Firefox I need to scroll page manually each time I refresh page. Is it possible to fix it?

Hello, this brigade engineering article might help you out.

From what I've gathered, in traditional websites, scroll restoration works fine in most browsers (including Firefox). But for single page applications, page loads can happen even before all site content is available so scroll restoration is typically not available (except in Chrome).

To enable it, I'd guess that you have to work from your application's code, the method to do that could depend on the framework you are using to build your application.

I'm not knowledgeable in single page app development but maybe you could try setting the History.scrollRestoration to 'auto' in the History API.
