[Webkit-unassigned] [Bug 136904] As of iOS 8.0 (12A365), all Mobify.js sites unexpectedly scroll down the page after load. Sometimes this happens on first load, and happens almost 100% of the time after navigating to another page on the website by clicking a link.

Certainly, the technical aspect is only a part of it.

So far I have received a total of 2 reports about this particular bug. As you can imagine, typical high priority bugs get hundreds of radars. I also did not receive any feedback on this during the 4 months of beta which is usually a strong sign this is not important.

I'll probably look at this bug in the coming weeks to understand what is going on, but from the data I have at this very moment, this is not a "drop everything and fix this" situation. I have other bug reports that seems to have higher value for users.

> As an aside, I would love to have a chat with you outside of this ticket about how our technology works and why we've taken the approach we've taken, in order to see if you think there is a better approach. It may seem like bad practice, but it's the best we've come up with based on the current limitations of the web :).

Yep, please email me. Best case we can extend the engine to accommodate your use case, worst case I fix this bug :)

Yep, that is an unfortunate bug in iOS 8, and it needs to be fixed.
