Clicking/Touching ionic item automatically scrolls to top


I have ion-content with overflow-scroll=true so that scrolling will be native android. Wish I did not need to do this but currently ionic scrolling on android 4.4.3 is not performant. So with this setting activated:

  <ion-content overflow-scroll-true>
      <div class="item" >....
     <div class="item" >....

The issue is if you touch any of the items (touchEvent or click event) then ionic will scroll the viewport to the top. Even though this is completely undesirable.

Any help here?
