    I am using Google Chrome on a 2011 MBP (10.8.1) and i have noticed that chrome doesn't remember where i was on a page when i go back.

    As in if i scroll down a page and click a link when i go back it puts me at the top of the page so i then have to scroll back down to where i was.

    It always goes back to where i was on my son's windows laptop and my old pc so i can't work out why it doesn't on my mac.

    It didn't really bother me at first but if i am looking through listings on eBay for example it can get very annoying having to scroll down the page every time i look at an item.

    I have the latest version of chrome and have been through the settings but i can't see anything about it.

    Anybody else having this issue and any ideas how to fix it?

    When ever I go back in Safari, it brings me to the part of the page that I was viewing. Maybe that is a feature that is only available to safari on the mac osx to make it more appealing.

    This has always worked for me. I just tried it now on eBay, Macupdate and this forum and it works fine.

    I scroll down a list of items, click on one to view the details and when I hit the back button it takes me to the previous page at the same place I was on the list. It works both with the back mouse gesture, by hitting command + [ or by clicking the back arrow.

    No issues here, using Chrome 22.0.1229.26 beta.

    I have just been using safari and it is the same as chrome sometimes remembers where i was sometimes goes back to the top of the page.

    I always use the back gesture on the magic mouse or the trackpad of the MacBook but i have just been browsing eBay and using the backspace button to go back instead and it seems to remember where i was every time which is weird.

    Anybody else find this?

    I am currently on Version 21.0.1180.89 do you thing i should download the 22.0.1229.26 beta?

    I know with Chrome on windows, if you scroll right after going back to a page it will not return to where you were on that page. However if you hit back and wait a second (without scrolling with your mouse, trackpad, etc) it will shoot you to where you were.

    I'm bumping because I'm beyond frustrated now. I have a 13" MBPr and using the two finger swipe back in Chrome is completely random. Sometimes it goes back to where I was but most of the time it goes back to the top. Using the delete key seems to work everytime but I don't want to use that.
    Anyone got this figured out yet or is Google just shuffling their feet on this issue?

    Any FIX YET?

    I've been having this issue since I've had this MBPr in Feb of 2012. NO FIX YET. Wtf?

    Two finger swipe works perfectly in Safari. Remembers my page location. It's smooth and I just wish it would be the same in chrome, or opera, or even that bloated slow crappy firefox ffs!

    Only reason i detest safari is broswing through bookmarks is a pain. It's much more simple in chrome. Bookmarks bar. Bookmarks drop down menu (NOT A ****ING NEW WINDOW!!!) Also, go to any forum or band website who offer mp3 downloads of their music... You can't download them in Safari! You can't save as. You can't do ****! I use ligamusic com. I can't download the music I buy through them... I have to use chrome.

    Talk about BULL ****. I ****ing HATE opera. I'm starting to regret going to a mac in the first place. Simple my ass.
