I cannot confirm this with the current master using mouse.
After creating a new carte and than clicking back on the Track tree icon, the scrol bar search and highlighting are back.
Any idea what else can I do to reproduce the issue.

hmm the main issue here seems to be that my mouse makes the current not-yet-focused table view jump ~20 lines up as soon as I use the mouse scroll wheel; I noticed this behaviour in other apps, as well.

The second issue is that the track selection is gone (while the scroll position is kept) when I focus the table again via controller or Tab key. If I press Up/Down keys or scroll with controller encoder, the first track is selected which makes the scroll position jump to the top.

I think I'll split this one into multiple bugs.
The tracks table losing focus when I just want to rename (not view) a playlist/crate or create a new on is annoying, because I'll have to scroll up in tree view to get back to Tracks, for example.

I updated the report, it now just describes the scroll position jump when using a controller.

The other aspect of this is in lp:1810810
