    I am running Mozilla 1.75 on 2 computers running W2k with the same
    service packs. Here are the behaviors:

    Computer 1: You scroll halfway down the page and click a link. After
    viewing the link you back arrow to return to the original page. The
    browser returns to the original page and automatically jumps down to the
    link you used.

    Computer 2: You do the same thing but when you return to the original
    page the browser does NOT jump down to the link you used. It stays at
    the top of the page.

    QUESTION: How to you get computer 2 to behave like computer 1?

  2. Is this happenong on exactly the same web page, clicking exactly the
    same link?

    There are some pages the coding of which defeatse Mozilla in this
    regard. eBay is notorious for it, for example.

  4. Try creating a new profile on computer 2, and see if that behaves like
    computer 1.

    Not sure but one thing to check is Edit - Preferences - Advanced - Cache
    on both systems. It might be that one is retrieving the page from the
    cache and the other is not. Again, not sure on this but that's where
    I'd start looking.
