Page jumps to the top when inserting links in rich text editor

Does anyone else experience this when inserting links using the Rich Text Editor, (Firefox on a Mac): I highlight the text I want to be the anchor for the link and go over to the right hand side to select, say, an assignment. When I click on the assignment, the Canvas page jumps up, so I can no longer see the text where I’m trying to insert the link. When I scroll back down, the link has indeed been inserted correctly. I've tried expanding the rich text editor area, but this doesn't help, either.

Hi  @smorgan21 ​...

I am sorry to see that your question has been sitting here unanswered since September 21st.  Is this still an issue that you are experiencing?  Have you reached out to the Help Desk staff at Instructure to see if this might be a bug in Canvas?  If you could come back here to give an update, that would be great...thanks Sue!

I'm pretty sure this is (or was) a bug. If you are still experiencing the issue then definitely report this to Canvas Support!

 @smorgan21 , since we haven't heard from you in a while, we're hopeful that Canvas Support was able to help you get this straightened out. I'm marking this as Assumed Answered, but if you have a moment to let us know what they discovered, the thread remains open for additional participation.


If it is a bug, it hasn't been fixed. It's a tiresome experience.

I use the Chrome browser, now. This has not been fixed in Firefox.

Thank you! Not my favorite browser, but you're does work. Much appreciated.

I have this problem in Chrome and the new IE. Firefox is the solution.

I still have this problem.  I'm using Firefox.

Apparently that’s a thing with Firefox. I either put up with it or give up and go to Chrome to edit pages.
