Refreshing page in browser jumps to top of page

Issue Summary

Almost every time I go to my .local website and refresh it to see my code changes, the browser refreshes to the top of the page. This is pretty frustrating when I’m working far down on the page. I don’t know if this is truly local related but I never notice this problem when I’m working on websites that are not in local. I understand if I do shift-cmd-R but I am not doing that.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    all local sites

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?
    latest 6.4.1
  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
    • For example: macOS Catalina or Windows 10 Professional
      mac os 12.4
  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
