Quick fix, change href="#" to href="javascript:void(0)"

Better fix, read what is perhaps the most oft cited article on thelist

(the problem is not a JavaScript one: your link tells the browser to
send the page to a null named anchor ("#") and some browsers interpret
this as the top of the document, others simply do nothing)
