I have trouble on many websites that require a lot of scrolling up and down. After clicking links and returning to same page, the page always returns to the very top of the page and once again you have to scroll down to the point where you were earlier before clicking the link. Same problem also when using separate tabs and returning to previous tab. Is there a fix coming for this soon?

This is because the browser doesn't keep open tabs in the background in memory, he reloads them every time you switch to another tab.

This has already been covered here: https://together.jolla.com/question/373/tab-reloading-browser-settings/

Only the lost scroll position due to tab change is discussed there. However, scroll position (and for example expanded "Ajax" lists) is lost also when going back in browse history, which makes reading news sites a pain. Is the cause the same? I think this browse history thing deserves its own issue.
