When the "category" page is your homepage, under certain conditions you will end up on it not scrolled to the top

Over at @Lee_Ars’s forum, he has the category page set as the homepage. When I’m reading a topic, and I’m not at the top (so a reply down the stream, this post for example: Observations ** - useful info - Bigdinosaur Discourse) and I press on the home button (big dinosaur in this case) I end up on the category page, but it’s all the way scrolled down. If I do the same action from the top of the topic, I end up all the way scrolled up.

Huh, weird. I’d never noticed before because my browser window is usually big enough to encompass the whole category screen without scrolling, but when I size the window smaller and try, I can repro just as you say. Looks like it happens on Chrome & FF both.

I did a git pull about 30 minutes ago, so code should be current.

Does this happen with the back button too or just by clicking the home button only?

Home button only. Back button puts you where you were scroll wise.

Just wanted to bump and say that this is definitely still occurring. It’s not breaking anything, but it is a little weird.

@neil is about to do away with the two-column category page in favor of the wide one this week, so this might become moot soon.
