If you download something like the zip file specified above, the download url gets put into the history such that if you go to another page and then try to go back, it will ask you to download it again.
The proper terminology here is "Session History" -- that's the one attached to the Go menu and the [Back] and [Forward] buttons. In any case this is a DUP of bug 23734, "Downloading files should not be added to the history", M15. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 23734 ***
