Back Button Doesn't Return to Same Place on Page

This has been happening for a month or two now, but it’s finally getting annoying enough to complain. Historically the back button would return to the same place I was on the previous page, now it returns to the top of the page. This can be quite cumbersome on large pages, namely long wikipedia articles.

Any ideas?

Is it only wikipedia you’re seeing this issue occur on or is it any site? Additionally, can you please tell me what iOS and Brave version you’re using at this time?

Thanks! Any site. iOS 15.5. Brave Version 1.39.1.

Will take a look at this and get back to you.

It looks like I can reproduce this on my end as well. I’m asking the iOS team to confirm the intended behavior and will likely open an issue for this.

I’ve recently noticed the same behavior with brave news…you wind up scrolling so far down. Find a link that interests you and click, when you come back (back button) you are reset to the top of the brave news feed. Very cumbersome - it used to work correctly (although it sometimes paused as it reloaded, but you eventually wound up where you were in the long list.)
