Image loading sends linked to post flying

If you get a notification of a reply, clicking it will bring up the reply. But, if there are images in previous parts of the thread, the reply disappears off the bottom of the window as the images load and make the above part longer, making you have to scroll in search of the thing you tried to read. Clicking the notification again is usually faster and the images are already loaded so the thing doesn’t fly away again but it’s still wacky behavior.


I’m not sure I’ve personally encountered this (mis)behavior, but it sounds pretty obnoxious. Especially for newer users who are just getting used to this Discourse thing. That’d be an excellent improvement.

Haven’t experienced what you’re describing. Is that via browser? Discourse app?
