VisualEditor: Using the formatting drop-down scrolls the page to the top (except in Firefox)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This happened on MediaWiki, he.wiki and en.wiki on Chrome.

Open some article for editing (preferably a long one so the effect is seen)
add some text in the middle or end, mark it and make it a "Heading".

Observed result: The text turns into a heading, but the entire edit section scrolls up to the top of the page. This is especially annoying when the page is long and when the edit is done in the middle.

I just checked the editor on Firefox 22.0, and it does not scroll there (works as expected). The bug seems to be in Chrome only.

If it helps, that's the UserAgent for my Chrome browser:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/27.0.1453.116 Safari/537.36

Confirmed in Chrome, Safari and not in Firefox, for whatever reason.
