Physics forums - scrolls right to the bottom of the page

  1. Aug 11, 2014 #1
    Hello. When I first go to the physics forums web site...the site or the computer by default
    scrolls right to the bottom of the page.

    Is there a way I can prevent this?

    Thx

    Sure, use another computer :wink:

    Seriously - no idea what is happening, but you are the first person ever to report this type of problem, so I bet it must be somehow related to your configuration/software installed/browser/OS combination.

    Can you try another browser?

    Does the URL have a hashtag in it?

    No. I looked on the address line.

    Does it happen only at PF?

    If I accidentally hit the scroll wheel in the middle of my mouse, the page will scroll down to the bottom without stopping unless I hit the wheel again. I don't know if this is causing your problem as I don't know why you would only do this when you come to PF. Just so happens I only accidentally do it on PF.

    I fixed it. By default the link I was using was by default sending me to a certain page in physics forums defaulted
    to the bottom of the page.

    I am using another link ..basically physicsforums.com and it is sending me to the main page..defaulted to the top.

    Good
    Bye
