    The problem - when viewing a webpage such as craigslist, if I click into an ad and then go back to the previous page my location on the previous page always defaults close to the top of the page instead of that last link I clicked. This is a very annoying problem if your a hardcore craigslist junkie like me because you can be you have to scroll back thru all of the ads you looked at just to get back to where you originally were.

    I posted about this issue once before but nobody else replied making me think that I was the only one that had it. So after countless weeks of trying to fix the problem using two kinds of soft resets, a hard reset, resets followed by reinstallations of 2.1 ,etc etc, I finally went to a sprint store to get it checked out and the rep had a Hero that did the same damn thing!! Apparently he didn't have a problem with his phone doing this because he just kept giving me some dumb blank stare.

    I'm not crazy, 1.5 never had a problem with web pages forgetting their locations when using the back button. Yet I haven't seen anybody else complain about this. Is anybody else able to recreate this problem? One thing to look for, after I reset the phone, reinstalled 2.1 or cleared the internet cache, the phone will do fine for a few minutes, recognizing pages like its supposed to, but after usually 4-6 times of clicking links the phone goes right back to forgetting locations.

    I'm sooo sorry I upgraded to 2.1. With 1.5 I had a phone I loved that worked fine and the only problem I had was a laggy phone-book, now I have a phone with a laggy dialer and that doesn't do web pages correctly. BTW, it does this with all browsers, not just the stock browser and Dolphin.

    With you being a "hardcore craigslist junkie" why even use the web browser to view listings. Just use the craigsnotifica app.

    in all the browsers I've used (dolphin, dolphin HD, steel, Opera, and x-scope) I don't recall any of them remembering where in the page you were scrolled to when clicking back.

    Same problem.1.5 in normal would default back to where you was but not in landscape. 2.1 does not and it is a pain.

    I didn't want to use app but after trying a couple Craigslist by reader seemed to me to load fastest and easy to use and defaults back. Also change search location easy.

    Doesn't that app just filter results based on search protocol that you enter into it? For the most part I just like to browse, not search for anything in particular.

    In 1.5, Dolphin and the stock browser always remembered the location, for me at least.
