Situation: there is a fixed-height parent div with
overflow: auto and enough child "line-item" divs of sufficient height to trigger the presence of scrollbars. Each of these child divs has tabindex=-1 so can be programmatically focused.
When any of these child divs is programmatically focused, the default behavior of the browser (in this case, Chrome 55) seems to be to scroll the parent div to center the newly-focused child. Is there any way to prevent this behavior?
