The following only happens, if you have a longer list of components within the same area.
If the area is not selected, it doesn't show its own edit bar nor the edit bars of any of its components. If you now select a components towards the end of the list of components, all these edit bars appear at once. This causes the selected component to be pushed down and out of view.
The desired behavior is that the selected component should remain visible.
This fix resolves the problem on desktop browsers.
