page change always jumps to bottom of content: jquery mobile


I have created a database driven website which uses jquery mobile. It is a shoe store, what happens is this.

First you go to the list of shoes, then click on a shoe for more details  (click view to go to shoe details). Each time you go to the shoe details page, the page aligns to the bottom of the page, very annoying.

I understand that it is trying to be smart and go back to the same spot that you left the page previously, but on many website this is not a feature, but a huge bug.

this is the website

I need the shoe details page to always load at the top of the page, the other pages on the site do this annoying thing too, but the shoe details is most important.
