I deleted that after viewing & logged out. Then I right clicked on Downloads & selected "Copy download link" & pasted on Firefox & it allowed me to download the same file even though I was logged out from the online account. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Login to an online email account 2. Download a file (e.g image) & log out of the account 3. View using Download console & delete the file 4. Select "Copy download link" on download console & paste on browser. Actual Results: I was able to download the file again. Expected Results: Prompt user to log back in to download the file. When I cleared the cache & cookies, it prompted me to log back in again.
This is most likely a bug with the online email service not clearing the relevant cookies when you "signed out", rather than a Firefox bug. Would need more details to confirm (does it happen in other browsers?).
this is not related to history, maybe cookies, but without an example url we don't have enough data to debug it.
