WP 5.8-beta4-51244. Theme: Twenty Twenty One. Plugins Installed: None

Consider the user has scrolled to the somewhat the middle in the block inserter tool and then searches for some keyword, the result content, rather than showing all the blocks from the top, scroller stays at the very bottom.

How to reproduce:

1: open an post and click on block inserter.
2: Scroll till the centre/end of toolbar.
3: Search for any block like 'Post' or 'Social' or first letter of some block

Issue: The scroller stays at the bottom, whereas the most accurate results are all on top

Expected Result: The scroller stays on top, where the most accurate block results are.

Hi @alanjacobmathew,

Thanks for all of the great testing!

I am having trouble reproducing this issue. I've followed the steps provided and I see the correct expected behavior (block inserter scrolls up to the top and shows the full search results).

Can you try recreating a fresh install and double checking that no plugins are active?

Marking as a close candidate with a worksforme resolution since I am unable to reproduce.

As requested I tried it on fresh install with no plugins.

I was able to reproduce the issue again with the word 'list' (from the second time I searched without reloading the page). I'll attach 3 gifs where the same keyword at different scroll location giving 3 different results(where block scroller doesn't go up).

For what it's worth I was able to reproduce the issue in 5.7.2 stable with the word 'You'.
