Fellow evolters,

Here's a real toughie and and I'm CLUELESS how to solve it. Hold on to your
britches, because it's difficult to explain.

Maybe one of you have ran into this issue before and fixed it?  PLEASE, let
me know what extras you might want in order to look at this perplexing

Within a container div is a list of divs inside.  Each div has an anchor tag
link to foo.  When there are items that excede the height of .PTcontainBDY,
the scroll bar appears due to the overflow. Clicking on an item that is in
the overflow section, causes the scroll to jump back up to the scroll top
zero position, highlighting that clicked anchor tag like it was clicked.
The user then has to scroll back down and reclick the anchor to do said
anchor tag action.

How can you circumvent this issue that happens only in the firefox browser?

css styling on the div:
.PTcontainBDY {
  margin-left: 9px;
  margin-right: 10px;
  margin-top: 10px;
  clear: both;
  overflow: auto;
  width: 97%;
  * width: 100%;
  background-color: white;
  border: 1px solid #336699;

Thank you in advance,
