Return to location of anchor link after clicking and being moved within page

Say you are reading [this comment](https://github.com/philc/vimium/issues/226#issuecomment-847959671) in the thread and you click the first link, titled "philc". That now brings you up to philc's comment, but how do I get back down to my original spot in order to continue reading?

This is only a problem when navigating within a page, as if the link is opened in a new page, closing the new page returns you to your original spot in the original page.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Usually the Back button (or equivalent keyboard shortcut) will return to the previous spot.

(It doesn't always work because scrolling around can cause additional content to load above the original spot, causing Firefox's memorized coordinates to no longer match the original content.)

Wow that works nicely, thank you!

It makes sense since the anchor is a new link.
