OS = Windows 7 ENTERPRISE, Browser = IE8 - 32bit default
When a client clicks on a url link running IE8 that is supposed to direct the browser to a particular section of a website the client is sent to the very bottom of the website instead and has to scroll up to the topic. This occurs at least 2 out of 8 times and is repeatable.
I have confirmed this occurs from several IE8 PCs.
Has a recent IE8 security fix turned something off?? Or is this by design with IE8?
Firefox does not do this for the exact same URL and link.

A intranet website that has how-to content. A named anchor like #Kernel in the link.
Example intranet site: http://pt.domain.xxx.com/cm342/cm34rn.htm#Kernel
The "Kernel" part of this URL takes the client to the Kernel Updates section of the website.
There is a TOC on the top of this website with this being one of the subjects.

Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.
This might be an incompatibility issue with IE.
As it is an intranet, please refer to the following artical for detailed information:
IE Developer Center:
IE’s Compatibility Features for Site Developers
Expression Web SuperPreview for Internet Explorer (free, stand-alone visual debugging tool for IE6, IE7, IE8 & IE9 Beta)
