Save page position when going bavk to it ???

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Home Theatre Guy, Aug 9, 2006.

  1. Like you scroll down a page and then go back and then back to it the
    saving it in the position you left it rather than haveing to scroll to
    go back where you had it.

    IS that possible ???

    even said bye to us!


    You may not know this but many nonliving things have a gender...

    Ziploc Bags are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can see
    right through them.

    Let me see if I can puzzle out what you're doing since your post is a
    tad incomprehensible.

    1. go to a page
    2. scroll down the page (you are just scrolling, right? not clicking
    an internal link I hope)
    3. go back (go back where? how? scrolling? using the Back button?)
    4. "then back to it ..." - huh? you already went "back"! now where
    the heck are you?
    5. "saving it in the position ..." - huh? saving it how? as a
    bookmark? as a file?)

    (note to self: recharge crystal ball batteries)

    I cannot tell which program you are thinking of,
    but let us take this for a test drive in Firefox.

    1. I go to
    2. I scroll down the page to the section titled "Transport to Tracks"
    3. I click on the link "Nelson Lakes Shuttles"
    This takes me to
    4. I click the back button
    This takes me back to the page I was on, and at the
    same position where I left it. I do not have to scroll down
    again to find the position I left.

    it gos back to the azact place on the page you were.

    A Tire is Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.

    Firefox remembers the page position at most sites I return to, but not
    at some sites.

    Does it do that at every site you return to?

    In the test drive above, the last page is
    is it not?

    And you mean the position of the scrollbar on the page
    do you not?

    Every time I go back to the page
    which I have just been on, the scrollbar does _NOT_ go back to the top.

    Go test it.

    It does go back to the exact place on the
    where I was.

    Either you have not taken the above test case for a test drive,
    or you have not explained yourself clearly.

    So answer these two questions
    1. In my test case above, which page do you think is the last page?
    2. Have you actually tried this test case?

    This happens to me. The page you return to will start at the top,
    but in a couple of seconds, after it has reloaded, it pops down to
    where you were when you left the page.

    Apparently this is site-dependant -- many sites work just fine in
    this manner, and some don't. When I've asked a given site about
    this, they always say this works OK with Internet Explorer, and ask
    what browser I'm using.

    When I tell them Firefox is the one, some of them reply saying
    they'll look into it.

    The only reason some people get lost in thought
    is because it's unfamiliar territory.

    I would say great. Now i can continue whereei left off :p

    Out of interest, what site are you talking about in
    particular? If it's got about 50 screens plus worth of
    information on it then the designer should have split it up
    into smaller chunks anyway ....

    I have the exact same problem but what I do is if im in the middle of a
    page and I want stay there I click the link with my middle button and
    that opens a new tab, instead of opening in the same tab and when im
    done reading the new tab I just close it and im back to the last tab on

    Just get urself tab mix plus and have this option enabled in tab mix plus

    events> tab closing>when closing current tab , focus > last selected,

    If u dont have a middle button then simply create a mouse gesture with
    tab mix plus that opens a new tab when example u press ctrl>left click.

    Not a fix but a way around this annoying problem, hope that helgs
