#11644 new defect Ruleset breaking page jump returning to posted comment

When visiting and reading an article and it's comments below the article, you sometimes want to respond to someone's comment. When you have commented on someone's post (you must be logged-in) and submitted this comment to the page you want to continue to read the comments from the point where you posted your latest comment.
This is done by a HTML page jump (by a script after posting your comment?).

When you don't use the HTTPS Everywhere ruleset for you're nicely returned to your latest comment. For example to:"number article"/"article title".html#r_6907153

where #_6907153 is the number of your comment.

But when the Tweakers ruleset is used and you post a comment, you are returned to the top of the comment section, in stead of your latest submitted comment. The link shown in the address bar then looks like this:"number article"/"article title".html#reacties

where #reacties (comments in Dutch) is the position at the top of the comments section, so no redirect / jump to latest position.

Expected result:
In stead of jumping to the generic #reacties position (top of comments section) on a news article page, jump to the position of the comment the logged-in person just posted.
