Hi there,

So when in Safari on a page and I click a link to an article, then i swipe back, the page always loads to the top, losing my place.  I then have to scroll down again to my place, where I was before.  So just wondering if anybody has a solution to this.

Thanks for taking time to help.

    It might be best to install Firefox or Google Chrome and then set one of those to be your default browser.

    Safari was a great browser back in its day, but since they've discontinued the windows version it's gone downhill fast. 


    I'm noticing all kinds of development related idiosyncrasies with Safari that just aren't an issue on Chrome.


    And I too have noticed that the back functionality of Safari has been broken for a while - what's worse is, when I swipe back it briefly shows me what the old page was, but then completely reloads it which is a huge distraction and time waster.
