Web page defaults to bottom of page
When I go to a web page the browser opens the page and then automatically goes to the bottom of the page. I have to scroll to the top of the page. Every time I click within the page and return to the main page, it goes back to the bottom of the page. Is there a way to prevent this? It gets to be very annoying and when I am on a site where I will be moving around a lot, I change to another browser. None of the other browsers do this. It doesn't do this on every page, but more than 50%. Thank you.
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
You may have switched on caret browsing. You can toggle caret browsing off/on by pressing F7 (Mac: fn + F7).
- Settings -> General -> Browsing
remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages"
Note that this is a Firefox accessibility feature.
