Prevent a page from scrolling to an iframe

I have an iframe at the bottom of a page.  When navigating to the page, the browser automatically scrolls down to the bottom of the page while the iframe loads.  Is there a way to prevent this behavior so that the browser will stay scrolled to the top of the page while the iframe loads?

Hi Casey,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you join us. 

Can you tell me what browser you're using when this happens? Have you been able to replicate it in other browsers?

It sounds similar to the issue another user was having in Firefox, and they shared their solution. See Prevent Firefox to auto-scroll to an HTML embedded iframe.

Let me know if that helps.

Take care,



I'll try the linked solution.  Thanks.

Thanks for that information! Please let us know how it goes.

Take care,


@Casey Cook did you ever find a resolution to this?  I'm having the same issue in Chrome using the Confluence iFrame macro.  The firefox solution does not work for me.

@Corey Webster No, I ended up removing the iframe and re-creating the content in a table.  I did not try the solution that Shannon mentioned though.
