      Description

      When a url contains a link to a Heading or anchor Chrome, if the URL to that Heading is pasted directly into the address bar of Google Chrome, or if link is opened in a new Tab user is not taken directly to that heading. Only reproducible in Chrome. Mozilla Firefox and MS IE does not reproduce the behavior.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Copy the link text directly (NOt by clicking on 'copy link text in the browser')
      2. Paste the link in the address bar and hit Enter
        OR
      3. Right-click on the link and choose 'Open in a new TAB'

      Expected behavior:

      User should be taken directly to that particular heading.

      Actual behavior:

      User is taken to the top of the page where the Heading is.

      workaround:

      • Right-click on the intended link to heading and choose 'Copy Link Address', or
      • Use Mozilla Firefox (sometimes that didn't work either, intermittent!)
