    I feel like this has happened before when other browsers were implementing similar features? Feels familiar.

    Bollocks! I mean gosh! I hope this doesn't mean another impromptu upgrade, I've just fixed Firefox on my notebook & it's now back as my default browser. :eek:

    HTTPS or HTTP, the page they were viewing could have been beyond a login and therefore contain something the user considers sensitive. I don't know how common it is for no cache directives to be used when serving login and post login pages, or to what degree that would affect this behavior of Firefox. I suppose one shouldn't rely on that anyway.
