Resizing Help pane should stay on top line of view or most recent label

      Description

      After clicking through a few links in the help panel/split/pane that comes up to the right of the editor pane (by pressing F1 with the cursor on a Qt function or type), if you need to resize the help pane it currently will not hold any particular location in your text and will jump to a different part of the help page you are looking at as each paragraph above the section takes up more or less space.

      Maybe this is more of how QWebView behaves, but it would be nice if it remembered where the text is selected or highlighted or the last label that it jumped to on the page and tries to keep that at the top during a resize.

      A slightly related issue, but not as annoying is that the horizontal scroll doesn't disappear when it isn't needed. (This is probably just a CSS formatting issue related to how the help files are shown).

      Keep up the great work on QtCreator. The integrated Help is one of my favorite features of the IDE. Thanks!
