Click Markers To Scroll To Different Sections Of A Website [Firefox]

Online content doesn’t follow a uniform pattern; some websites choose to distribute a single article across several pages, others prefer to create slide shows of the information while still others will forgo so much as adding subtopics and headings. This makes it fairly difficult to scan a long document for the information you’re looking for when you don’t want to read the whole thing. Wikipedia handles this problem exceptionally well by providing a list of links to topics covered in an article.
