I noticed this with questions a bit ago, but now I see it's an issue with hubs, too.
On questions, if the url of the question end with a # and you click to delete an answer someone left, it doesn't delete the answer, it just "jumps" you up to the top of the question.
On this hub:
When, you click to enlarge one of her pictures and then click the x, you are back up at the top of the hub... and not in the section of the hub near the picture.
I noticed in this case, after enlarging the image, the url is changed to something with a # at the end. This is why I decided to bundle this all into one bug report.
Edit: Lol, I should make sure I have the right url in my clipboard before hitting paste!
Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
I have forwarded this to our engineering team to be addressed.
Just got news from engineering that this should now be fixed. I confirmed so in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.
I don't really see this as a bug. Standard HTML programming brings any browser to the top of a page when a link has # at the end of the URL. I see it happen a lot that some people paste an invalid URL into a Hub, and even in profiles, without testing the links.
I should clarify, It's adding the # to the end of the url at times it shouldn't be added.
It should never be added to the end of the URL. If copying a URL one needs to copy only the address itself and not the entire string that may include other parameters that misdirect the location. You said it very well with your last line in your first post in this thread.

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

I have noticed that when I open up some hubs to read that there is a # symbol at the end of the url.What does this mean - is it anything to do with the idling/pending/whatever they are calling it this week business? And why only on some hubs?

How do you find the short url for your hub again, after publishing it?

I was just wondering is there are ways to view my hubs shortlinks after I published a hub? I know it is shown every time you publish a hub, but what if you accidentally closed it just like I did, how to view the shortlinks again?...

Why is it that people insist on taking over someone else's question, or hub, for their own soapbox?Lately I've noticed several questions, and even the occasional hub, where several people answer the question, and one person (not the author either) take over and tell people they are wrong and why,...
