Steps to reproduce

Edge needs ‘scroll anchoring’ or something equivalent to that because as webpages are loading, the content is ‘pushed’ , shifting/scrolling/jumping. It’s not only a problem because it prevents you from reading or focusing on an image while a page is still loading, but in some cases I have clicked on something I did not intend to because the page shifted/scrolled just before I clicked. That isn’t just frustrating but could actually cause problems for users! It especially effects slower machines or slower networks. This is not a low priority issue

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. There may not be much we can do about this as it is likely a webdesign issue which needs to be addressed by the webmaster of each specific website.

      Please provide us with a couple sample sites where you have the problem so we can better assist you.

    • This bug is incredibly annoying, frustrating and quite frankly not acceptable in 2018! Very, very inconvenient when filling in data on webpages.

      When I found this page. it loaded so I started reading, then it loaded a little bit again and jumped to the bottom of the page whilst I was halfway through the comments about 10-20 secs after (I have broadband and a fast PC and everything is very much up to date). Also, it happens on the BBC, MSN, and probably every other site every now and again. I struggle to believe a multi-million dollar company hasn’t fixed this yet.

      I’m almost certain I haven’t experienced this with any other browser. Even Internet Explorer back in the day, otherwise I would of been used to it and wouldn’t had noticed it so much in the last few months.

    • To Edward B. My problem was actually issue #12667267 Mouse Wheel does a forward/back through browser history. There is an attachment on that thread showing a workaround.
