I'm too lazy to check it out on a Saturday morning, but I'll bet the problem is that the skip to main content link is hidden off screen in WET. The behavior you're describing is exactly what happens when the focus moves off screen—the browser loses track of the current location, and focus skips back to the top of the page.

If you go to the following link you can tab a few times to see the skip nav appear and if using Firefox in responsive design view then you can see how it looks on mobile but since there is no tabbing on touchscreens I wonder how it would show up on an actual device...
