Wiki pictures: scrolling down

Dear Diane,

I couldn't remember this ever happening to me with the wiki so just spent 
some time looking at it in three Browsers: Mozilla (the one I normally 
use), Internet Explorer, and Netscape (old version). I was always returned 
to the spot I started from. What browser are you using? Of those three I 
checked I think my old version of Netscape is the worst since it puts all 
the words on the right side of the page and even if you scroll to center 
it, it makes its way back to the right each time you look at a picture.

I know the irritation it can cause if you return to the top however. 
Friends referred us to Ofoto to look at their digitals of our trip (all 485 
of them.) They were all thumbnails. If you clicked on one to look at it in 
more detail you were returned to the top of the page afterwards with no 
clue (since the thumbnails weren't numbered or named) about which ones you 
had already seen. But this isn't happening to me on the wiki.
