I'm running Mozilla 1.5a on 2.6.0-test3 (almost unpatched). Browser
correctly goes to the last scrolled position (on most pages) after
clicking the back button. I have periodically seen the symptom you
describe, but I don't believe it's kernel related, since I have seen
that symptom on 2.4. I would run more tests on both kernels, and look
for additional variables that could be contributing to it. You might
also try then non-mm2 test3 in the remote chance that it is a kernel
problem. Also, make sure the problem isn't specific to certain web
pages(right now, the problem manifests itself on the bugzilla pages, but
not on a handful of others that i've just checked), and check against
bugzilla 210992:
