It's a change that has been noticed by our teachers in Moodle and annoys them when building their courses.
- Create a course
- Add an activity or a resource to a section that need scroll to arrive to them
- Visit the activity or the resource just added
- Click the browser's back button
- Visit a forum post
- Click the "Permalink" link for one of the posts down the page and copy the URL
- Paste it into a private browsing tab
- Confirm that you're scrolled to the correct post
- Press the browser button
- Expected: you're scrolled to the correct post
- Actual: You're at the top of the page
*the page scrolls to top*
*the page stays at the same scroll position*
This is happening because we now scroll the <div id="page"> instead of the <html> node like we did in 3.11 and earlier.
