I’m not sure if this is a FireFox-only issue and I doubt it, but the procedure is as follows:
- Open a page at a specific post (hotlink, permalink whatever)
- The post is vertically centered and highlighted with the (new) blue color.
- Refresh the site.
- The page now centers the previous post and highlights that. You can notice how the url changed to
- Repeat until you reached the original post of the thread.
I can understand why this is happening and I also understand that it is hard to track which post I am actually reading, but in the described scenario this should not happen.
My use case that led to this discovery:
I opened a few posts that I wanted to read later in multiple tabs. I then wanted to reply to those but since I didn’t have an account on the site yet I had to create one. Hence, I had to refresh all the tabs I opened and suddenly was wondering why I opened them in the first place because I could not remember why I would open the exact posts the view was focussed on.
