ddkilzer: thanks for the confirmation.

bdash: yes both Camino and Webkit do it on that page, but Camino seems to have
more intelligent behaviour, for example it doesn't jump on this page:


or this page:


etc etc there are plenty more examples. In both the examples above Webkit
jumps. Why do I consider it a bug? Because the Gecko behaviour is smoother and
less jarring. Instinctively my eyes follow the page as it flicks to the top and
the bottom and as I basically have to sit on the Mac all day refreshing around
ten websites for my work this can get tiring for the eyes. I'd rather see
everything in place update/refresh then be taken to the top of the page and
back especially in cases were the page loads in split seconds.

The reason I've put it in this bug report is because this bug seems to have
turned into a more general discussion on refresh behaviour and I thought I'd
narrow it down to more specific things that could be made into individual bugs
(as it seems nothing is happing with this original report even though Hyatt
agreed that the Webkit refresh is too slow).
