Description Scroll bar in portal resets to top of portal after clicking a button that opens a new window.  After closing the new window, the original virtual window returns to focus exactly how it was left (same active tab, etc.) except that active portal is now scrolled to the top record.  Reset scroll bar option is NOT checked.  There are no layout/script triggers that would refresh portal.

How to replicate  Place a portal with many records on a layout in a tab control.  Place a button on portal row that opens a new window and goes to a related record in a different layout.  On the targeted layout, place another button that closes the active window.  If you scroll to the bottom of the original portal, click the button to navigate to the new window, and then click to close that virtual window, the portal will be back at the top record on the sending layout.


Workaround (if any) None found.
