Hello All,

When browsing TMP, when I click on a thread then clicked back, TMP appeared right where I left, in the same spot on the page as the thread I had clicked. I recently noticed (this week) that when I navigate back out of a thread, TMP jumps to the top of the page, back up to the Masthead. Did something change with Firefox or TMP? Any thoughts? It's kind of annoying behavior.

yeah, it happened a while back. My "solution" is right click the link you want to read, which will open the link, read it, close it, and you will be back where you were. Annoying ain't it?

I just checked. It currently is taking me back to where I was when I clicked on the thread. Fixed?

Yeah, it is working.

OK, thanks everyone for the input and answers. I just checked TMP with Edge, it behaved the normal way. Must be a Firefox thing. Which is wierd….

Yep, I'm having the same problem with Firefox. Haven't tried Edge yet.

Maybe something to do with Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection feature. (Click outlined shield icon in front of URL to access).

In private browsing mode it'll stop links from working if they (the links) report your clicks back to interested parties.

@ Stoppage, Nope. That didn't do it.
