Steps to reproduce:
- Open Private Browsing window
- Visit any download site (for example, https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en#downloads )
- Download some file (for example, tor-browser-linux64-8.0.6_en-US.tar.xz )
- Open the directory with the downloaded file in the terminal and issue the following command with the name of the downloaded file
gio info $filename
$ gio info tor-browser-linux64-8.0.6_en-US.tar.xz
display name: tor-browser-linux64-8.0.6_en-US.tar.xz
The GIO metadata for a file downloaded in the private browsing mode shall not contain the URL it was downloaded from. This behavior violates the expectations about the private browsing mode.
For Mac OS the same problem was fixed in bug 1432915.
Ideally the writing for non-private windows should be configurable too, but for private ones this is a definite bug.
