VisualEditor: [Regression] On init, page is scrolled to the bottom but cursor remains at the top in Firefox
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description:
Have you ''really'' implemented a new version at MediaWiki that scrolls to the ''bottom'' of the page when opened in VE? Was this intentional or (if I'm allowed to say this) just something that should have been obvious with the most basic test, but somehow wasn't noticed? FF25, W7, nothing fancy or unusual. And no, this didn't happen in earlier versions, and doesn't happen when I use VE on enwiki...

Note that the ''cursor'' is at the top, but the part of the page you view (if the page is longer than the screen) is the bottom, so your cursor isn't even visible when you start typing... If it had been intentional, I suppose that the cursor would have been at the bottom as well (still useless, but at least consistent).

Confirming with Firefox 25 on Fedora 20 on mediawiki.org.
