  • For the scrolling to work its a named anchor you would need to add <a name="globalId"/>. But if the Salesforce 1 app is using the anchor name to switch pages that won't work. Someone who knows more about Salesforce 1 apps will hopefully be able to answer.

  • What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Divs are not normally focusable unless they have contenteditable enabled. Is this an editable div? If not what is the desired end result? If you just want to scroll it into view, that can be done other ways.

Please do not make any changes to the DOM in javascript controllers. This functionality is not supported, may lead to race conditions, and will cause trouble in the security review. Make changes to the aura component objects, and let the renderer update the DOM. If you want to make DOM changes yourself, do this in a renderer, not in a controller, in order to ensure that your update will be the final update and will not be overwritten by the default renderer.
