How to stop history list view from resetting to top?

When opening a page from history list sorted by last visited, the opened page (naturally) jumps to top of the list. But so does the list selection, as it stays on the item, and probably because of this, the list view gets reset to top. This is annoying if you want to open more than one page, and must scroll several screenfuls down to reach them.

None of the other sorting methods help either. For example, sort by date just groups the list by date, and sorts alphabetically (!) inside each day. The only chronological sorting method is by last visited, and the position where interesting pages are, is lost every time one is opened.

Is there a way to stop the history view from resetting? It does not reset when opening a bookmark, following links on webpages or using direct URLs.

There was an add-on that could help, but it's not compatible with Quantum.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.
