This is a little complicated, and I'm not sure if it's a bug or expected behavior.

Sample page:

At the bottom of the page is a navigation list of page numbers. The above link starts things on page 4, just because.

Right above the page numbers, in the HTML, is a one-line bit of script that adjusts the page's URL to include "#pg_lu". So the above URL becomes "". This causes the page to adjust to the anchor point, as might be expected from how anchor points are designed to work. However, this is where it gets odd.

The page is set up so that there are two rows of stories at the top (Trending and Latest Series), and then a vertical list of "Latest Updates". The anchor point is an ID on a (otherwise empty) div that's between the two top rows (so between Trending and Latest Series). My expectation is that the page will be positioned so that that div is exactly at the top of the visible viewport. However that's not where the page is moved to when the script updates the page URL. Instead, it's moved so that the bottom of the page is aligned exactly with the bottom of the navigation list.

This is not bad, exactly, because you might want to work through the page list without having to scroll down to the bottom of the page each time. It is weird, though, because decades of using the web has always rendered anchor points at the top of the visible screen.

This is not the only place where I've encountered this strange behavior recently (it's only started happening in the last couple months), but the other page I've seen it on is more complicated to demonstrate.

So is this a bug, or expected behavior for some javascript usage? Chrome seems to behave the way I expect. Firefox behaves as described, even on a fresh testing profile.

I see two differences between Firefox and Chromium (Linux):

1) The initial load placement, as you described.

2) When you refresh the page (click the icon or F5) Firefox honors the #pg_lu (as it is in place before the refresh), and Chrome reloads the page at the current scroll position--ignoring the #pg_lu. (Force reload, control-icon, has the same behavior--different for the two browsers.)

In either case I don't know what the HTML specification would require, but since the Firefox first load behavior is a regression I would create a bug report for it.
