Restoring to incorrect scroll position #1719

commented Oct 1, 2019

Issue details

On both Firefox and Chromium, the scroll position isn't being restored properly on a browsersync-triggered reload. It's being offset. In the example GIF below, each browsersync-triggered reload restores the scroll position a little further down from the position it should be.

The larger the document is, the larger the offset is. You may need to scroll to a random position and trigger a few reloads to get it to happen.
