Firefox back button loads top of page instead of where I left off

How do I fix this Firefox problem? I go to a website. I scroll down, click a link, decide to go back to the original page. I click the back button, and when the previous page loads it loads at the top of the page, not where I had been in the page when I'd scrolled down and clicked the link.

This happens on every single website; Metafilter, Google search results, everything. Most of the time I open links in a new tab anyway, but sometimes I'm just quickly browsing and I just want to click, inspect, and go back, and this is ANNOYING.
I think it began when I upgraded to Firefox 4. Newest version is installed, I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 with all updates installed as well. Couldn't find anything in Firefox settings, and Googling led me either to 4+ year old posts linking to defunct extensions or smartasses saying that Firefox 4 is a mess. Not helpful.
