Odd Behavior with Multi-page Forums

I have observed an odd behavior, when navigating multi-page forums.

As an example, I use the Premiere Elements Tips & Tricks sub-forum often, to link to helpful articles. It is, like most, a multi-page forum.

As the order of the articles will change, as new replies are added, I often need to navigate to multiple pages, to find the one that I need. My bookmark opens that forum onto Page 1, which is normal. I then scroll that page, looking for what I want. If it is not there, I will use either the Next, or the Page 2 buttons to move on. As I have scrolled to the bottom of Page 1, the Next (or Page 2) page will open at the bottom, rather than at the top, the first time that I do this. Pages 3, and above, will always open at the top. Also, if I go back to Page 2, it now opens at the top. I only see this, when going from Page 1, to Page 2, and then, only the first time. Odd, but no deal breaker, as I just manually scroll back to the top of Page 2, and then scroll down, looking for a particular article.

I am on Chrome and Win XP-Pro SP-3. I have not yet tried in IE 7 - my latest version.

Has anyone else experienced this little anomaly?

I can confirm that if I use the [Next >] button the page stays scrolled to the bottom.  Choosing [Next >] again took me to the top of the items, NOT the top of the page.This is with Windows 7 x64 and IE9.-Noel

I have never seen any indication of who reads the comments, but this page may be a better place, since it says it is for comments about the site

Thanks John. I was unaware of that forum.

Learned something new, and at my age...

Exactly the same here in Firefox/Mac (latest versions). In Safari/Win 7, from page 3 onwards I am taken to the Forum Comments title line, not to the top of the page either.

Noel & Claudio,

Thank you both for the confirmation. I was a bit worried that it was either my browser, or my system, but you helped rule those out.

As I mentioned, it's not a big deal, just an oddity, and for me, only seems to happen when going from Page 1 to Page 2 (when I am on the bottom of Page 1), and then MY expected behavior returns, even if I have to go from Page 1 to Page 2 a second time.

Thank you - I feel better now.

Confirmed that with Jive. No one ever reported that before. But they can reproduce it.

This is the proper place for forum items.

Adobe-admin,

Sorry, but I am out of "points... "

Thank you for the input. I just found it slightly odd behavior, and all that it means is a bit of scrolling, now that I know what to expect. In most cases, the average user probably does not go to Page 2 of a forum, but many of us do. If it becomes a pain, I'll just jump quickly to Page 3, and then back to Page 2.

Hey, Adobe never promised to make my life perfect - just better... I can easily live with this, but thought I'd ask, in case it was OE on my part.

Appreciated,

Hunt
