Description of the issue:
If I open a link in a new tab but do not go to the tab before it finishes loading, it automatically scrolls to the bottom of the page and I have to manually scroll back up to the top.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open a link in a new tab
  2. Do not immediately switch to the new tab (e.g. let it load in the background)
  3. Click on the new tab

Expected result:
Page will have loaded at the top, as new pages usually do. Instead, it’ll be scrolled to the very bottom.
