    If you go to a folder/place which has several folders inside so that you have to scroll down to see the very last folder. Now open that very last or the second last folder, now press back button. Here you will notice that finder will take you on the top of the page instead of keeping the focus to the last line of folders which you came out from.

    I have tested this is on Yosemite. I can confirm that in previous versions of OS, it wasn't the case! if you go inside a folder and come out by pressing back, the focus of Finder stays there on same folder area which you came out from. Now in El Capitan, when you press back button, it scrolls to the top of the page and you have again scroll down to see those folders.

    This is a really annoying bug which I have been sending reports since beta 1 and Apple has not fixed this until this date.

    I noticed this and its been driving me crazy. Hopefully Apple fixes it if its a bug, or if its a new setting someone can tell us the fix.

    Wow, just noticed this...? I spotted it beta's ago and have held back on Yosesh*te as a result. Additionally, in Finder's Cover Flow (List) view the Cover Flow section resets to massive on each Finder folder click or launch. Another deal breaker for me...

    I'm hoping that it is a bug and therefore will be fixed. Because if it's intentional design then firstly, it's sh*te and secondly, extremely annoying.

    I'm guessing you haven't noticed the moving preference panes for Message and FaceTime yet? Launch those apps, set your preference pane position, close and relaunch the app, opening prefs and woo-hoo, they have moved... I did report it as a bug, but mine were closed as a duplicate. Which is a good thing as it means they are working on it... But again, another annoyance and reason to stay away from a x.x.0 OS launch.

    Good luck. :)
