Why does a LAT/LONG search jump my zoom out to 1/3 of the USA?

I am trying to verify a POINT I added last week exists on the OSM maps.
I type in the LAT and LONG from Basecamp into the SEARCH field and get the INTERNAL generated LAT and LONG. When I zoom in the POINT disappears, but when I hit the INTERNAL Lat and LONG, it jumps back to 1/3 zoom of the USA.

It did not work like this LAST WEEK. How do I KEEP ZOOMED in and still move the map to a LAT and LONG location?


It seems to work now, but I do not know why.
