    iPad browser problem with ios7
    Now I've upgraded to ios7 on my iPad, all browsers (safari, Chrome, Mercury) have same problem in that they no longer return to the last place on previous page. So I might be reading a newspaper article summary half way down a page, then click on it to get more detail, which opens a new page, but on returning to first page it opens somewhere near the top. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Mercury as a test, but no difference. As the problem is with all browsers I'm wondering if it could possibly be an ios7 issue. Any suggestions for solving would be gratefully received.

    Can i try and understand you more ?? Do you mean, if you touch on a link, and it loads that link in the same page, then you hit the back button and the page loads again, but near the top, is that whats happening ? If this is what you mean. I have done this just now in Safari, Chrome, Dolphin and Atomic, and i get taken back to the point of the page i was reading.
    I would say you have had a corrupt upgrade.

    and in this instant, its always backup first and then see if you can go here and download the iOS 7 .ispw then via iTunes hold down Option while you click Restore and navigate to the downloaded .ispw and restore from a clean iOS 7 then restore from backup.

    A way around this is too, long hold the link, and open in a New Tab and read then close. ??

    Many thanks for a quick reply TattooedMac, you've understood the problem correctly. I'll give your suggestion a try.

    Problem persists even with fresh install of ios7. However, it seems to be particularly online newspapers that have this problem (example is Washington post or Daily Telegraph, but you have to scroll well down a page to test whether the browser is returning to the same point). Other sites I've now tried, such as Wikipedia and New Scientist magazine, work fine. I'm puzzled.

    HMmm yea well im out of idea's and it could even be the way those papers have written their code for Mobile devices ?? Not 100% sure, BUT it is a possibility. If i was you, i would be doing a Long Hold on the Link then Open in a Different Tab then close that Tab down when done, which will bring you back to the page and place you left ?!?!? Its all i have lol

    The problem happens across browsers because, underneath, they're all the same. Apple does not allow applications into the App Store that interpret code (effectively all a browser does when opening a webpage) so each browser actually uses Safari's WebKit component underneath. Thus, behaviours in one are likely to appear across all browsers.

    Given that it happens on only a few pages, I'm willing to bet that it has something to do with how the page ie designed. How that's so is beyond me but this might be something that you have to deal with.
