I'm using the question about the new Stacks Editor as an example as it's a good use case due to the long post.

On desktop, when we change the page of answers, the URL includes a UI fragment: #tab-top. That fragment tells the browser to automatically scroll to the list of answers.

For example: https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/360033/opt-in-alpha-test-for-a-new-stacks-editor?page=3&tab=votes#tab-top

On mobile, however, the fragment is not there. And it forces us to scroll every time we need to change a page.

For example: https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/360033/opt-in-alpha-test-for-a-new-stacks-editor?page=3&tab=Active

If this is by design, I would argue that, at least, the behaviour should be switched. It's more convenient to have the page automatically scroll to the list of answers on mobile compared to desktop.

    I highly recommend clicking the "full site" link at the bottom to get a much better responsive site that does handle this (and many other things) properly. Although on that particular page, scrolling all the way to the bottom might be an adventure. – Ryan M Jan 28 at 9:22
  • Hard adventure mode is when you want to scroll back up to the pager when you want to switch pages. But going into full site mode is a neat idea, never thought of that, thanks! Although there are pages that not responsive but a have a mobile mode (mostly the profile pages). – Dan Jan 28 at 9:46
