[Desktop][Playlists] Restore feature to find the location of a song in a playlist

I often want to find where a song is in the playlist — that's the main reason I use the search in playlist functionality.  It used to be the case that when you search a song, then select it, then close the search filter, Spotify would show the playlist scrolled to the position of the song.

Since the recent update, this procedure does not scroll the playlist, leaving the scroll at the top of the playlist, so I don't know where the song is that was found.  I have a few large playlists, so scrolling manually to find the selected song would take a long time.

I just found a workaround (play the song, then double click the album art — still navigates to the song even though search doesn't), so this is lower priority for me, but it would be nice if closing search still auto-scrolled.

By the way, I noticed something else that changed: I think I used to be able to navigate to a location in a playlist, click another playlist, and drag a song over the first playlist and hover until it opens: and the playlist would open scrolled to the previous location.  It no longer does that, but opens at the top of the playlist.  I do miss the old behavior in that case too, and wonder if it's related.
