      Description

      This is a tricky bug that I verified in each three columns theme.
      Standard theme is affected by this issue too.

      The issue is this:
      Step 1: Go to a course page.
      Let's say in:
      http://qa.moodle.net/course/view.php?id=4
      (yes, you can get evidence of the issue qa.moodle.net too)

      Step 2: Open a new browser TAB (ctrl-t) and go to the URL
      http://qa.moodle.net/course/view.php?id=4#section-3
      Scroll the page at top.

      The html code is the same but the pages look different.
      To understand where the pages are different switch quickly between the first and the second browser TAB.
      As you can see the central column moves up in the TAB where the URL has the anchor.

      To see this issue better, switch to different three columns themes and perform the same test.

      Here are two more URL to let you better see this problem.

        This issue affects Firefox (11) and Safari (5.1.5).
        Chrome is free from this problem.
        I do not know what happen in Opera, Konqueror and IE.

        Hi, Daniele.

        I tried this in Firefox 11 (Windows) but I did not see the affect you described.

        This is the difference that I see with FF 11 for Mac. As you can see, the "list of topics" (even if it is written in Italian) is missing the vertical alignment whether an anchor is added to the URL

        Sounds like the Anchor is too heavy!

        I don't see any changes at all Daniele...could it be the MAC that is causing the odd behaviour?

        Yes, you may be right.
        I tested it one more time with:
        http://qa.moodle.net/course/view.php?id=2&theme=formfactor
        and
        http://qa.moodle.net/course/view.php?id=2&theme=formfactor#section-3
        and the outcome is:
        mac firefox: the issue is true
        mac safari: the issue is true
        mac chrome: the issue is true
        WXP IE7: the issue is false
