I tried this just now with mozilla (a copy I compiled from source over the weekend) and it worked fine. After clicking on an individual auction and clicking back, mozilla returned to the auction list page and positioned the view to the correct part of the page.

Note that mozilla displays the beginning of the page while the page is being reloaded; after this is done, it scrolls the page to the part that should be visible. Maybe your friend isn't waiting long enough?

This slows him down a lot.  Opening the item link in a
new tab is not any better.
Opening a link in a tab doesn't make the original page scroll, so I presume you mean your friend just doesn't like tabbed browsing for some reason. I find that surprising; it seems to me that tabbed browsing, with links loading in the background, is perfect for what he's doing. What is it that he doesn't like?
