Mostly found when using lists but other occasions exist too. Top of its is the ability to go to page group. But, user must scroll to bottom to view content and, once, there, cannot go to next page without going all the way back to top of page. 
Suggestion: have next/previous page group, next/previous at both top and bottom. And, have the Display number of records also at top and bottom. (If there are >10 records, user can immediately decide whether to view 10 at a time or more.)

can you show an example (sceenshot).
For me it is at the bottom.

if there is no further need of discussion, you can create an issue at github, or better (if you can), do a pull request.

See github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/pull/3702 , however Greg doesn't believe any change to current behaviour is necessary

perhaps you close your old pull request and do a new one.
I do not see any comment of Greg, concerning your old pull request.

For me (freris.de) I did another (one line) solution. (using the scroll bar, to see all you need. I did because there is no save for last used value.)

My example is a list from Place hierarchy where there's 185 entries. My request is to have both the top show at the bottom as well.
 
and have the bottom show at the top as well

thx for the link.
My conclusion: Every List starts with (only) 10 entries. So the Buttons for next (or another) page are always visible and the is no need to have them at the bottom.
But if you select another number of entries (between 50 and 1000) you always have to scroll for reaching the pagination buttons.
So best would be to have them always visible at top (best for Gregs arguments), then it doesn't matter, they have to be placed only once.

p.s. I have been wrong saying that these buttons are at bottom at my site. (I always show all entries, what is quick enough for my lists)
