Moving between emails isn't resetting scroll location


I am using two panel vertical view.

I read a long email in the view pane, and need to scroll. When I go to another email, the scroll position isn’t reset to the top of the email, instead it is scrolled down to the matching location from the previous email, or at the bottom of the email if the new email is shorter than the previous one.

To Reproduce…

  1. Use two panel view.
  2. View a long email, and scroll down.
  3. Go to another email.

Expected Behaviour

The newly selected email scroll location should be at the top of the email.

Actual Behaviour

The newly selected email scroll location is at the same position as the previous scroll position.
