Retain scrolling position on website

Let's say you are scrolling through your photos at dropbox.com/photos looking for something specific. You see a thummbnail that might be what you want, so you click on it. Having seen it full size, it's not what you want, so you click back.

Why does the photos page then go right back to the very top!!! If you've just scrolled your way through 100s or even 1000s of photos, it's really annoying for it to go back to the beginning just because you viewed a photo.

You then have to scroll all the way down again and try to find your place.

 How can i browse pictures without always getting taken back to the start page each time i exit a preview.When you're finished viewing a picture you want to return to where you left off, not returned to the very top of a category (beginning of pictures)??

Hey people - thanks for writing in and providing your feedback!

I understand where you're coming from as navigating your files would be easier if you went back to the place you were before opening (and closing) a file's preview.

Therefore, I'll pass your comments on to the dev team as a feature request.

Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to add please; I'm always a post away!

PS: @jdc1 I moved your post under this thread to keep all the relevant feedback under the same place.
