So, I have Bing as the default search engine in Edge (Edge settings) and I have set to open links from search results in a new tab/window (Bing settings).

Steps to reproduce the issue:

1. Open Edge and perform a search.
2. Scroll about halfway down and click any link from the search results. (It will open in a new tab)
3. Go to the newly opened tab and spend about a minute on that new tab. (You can browse that website / open any other new tab and browse something).
4. After a minute or so, click on the Bing search results tab and you will observe that you are taken on the top of the page instead of being in the same position (halfway down). The scrolled view is reset which is frustrating especially if you had scrolled a long way down earlier.

Checked the above in Chrome and I was able to reproduce this issue with Bing set as the default search engine. This does not happen with Google set as the default engine. Seems to be an issue with Bing search.

Does this happen with you? I know most of you might not be using Bing but wanted to check if you do.

Did you enable Bing as the default search engine in Chrome and then check the above test scenario?

I just checked it in the latest updated version of Chrome and the issue is reproduced.

No, Google is my only engine in Chrome, sorry!

Hello @Nzyme

Just to say that I get the same problem with using Bing Search. I have Bing as default search engine in both Edge and Vivaldi browsers, and I get the same behaviour as what you describe; when I go back to the search results tab I am then taken back to the top of the page.

It happens with immediate effect on my machine. ie., I don't have to wait a minute.

Also, happens if I click on the Back (left arrow button), (from the loaded website page).

I noticed it happening before ChatGPT was launched on Bing.

Thanks for confirming. I also checked in a guest virtual machine and confirmed the same. Provided feedback to Bing (Microsoft).
