Firefox Scrolling Problem

It’s a small but very annonying problem for me. I use this site as an easy way to read some of my bookmarked interests. So, I have to scroll down and click on one of my bookmarks or the blogroll. But, when I am finished, and hit the back button to return, I find my browser window (Firefox 1.0PR) is back at the top of the screen rather than where I left off when I left the site. I noticed this isn’t a problem with the “Human Condition” theme I’m using, so I am pretty sure it’s not a CSS issue. But, I also haven’t noticed this problem in other WP blogs either. So, I can’t figure out where the problem is at the moment.

Anyone who wants to help would be appreciated.

    Hey Nate, I like the new look! Firefox has some interesting quirks. For example, on Gamespot’s site, when I just the mouse wheel to scroll down on certain areas of the site, it’ll scroll down on an image or a cell within a table. That can be pretty annoying at times.

    Actually, Joey, that is not a Firefox problem. It’s because that site uses iFrames for certain parts of their site and their coding for that site isn’t that pretty in terms of fitting to W3C standards. Firefox does what it’s supposed to do, but if you look at that bottom center column, the height of that area is more than what it should be set to. IE just handles it differently (maybe better for that site, but standards wise, worse).
