My website has a branch that is protected with username and password. At the prompt I enter those, exit Firefox and start Firefox again. When I go to the branch and this time I do not get the username and password prompt and have free access. However, when I do shift-refresh the prompt shows. Apparently Firefox does save something that it shouldn't. Is it a BUG???

When you restore a tab session, the page content is loaded from the cache. Sites can manage this with the Cache-Control header. Locally, you can use a private window, clear the cache on close or disable the disk cache (browser.cache.disk.enable set to false in about:config).

Probably better is to clear the disk cache when you close Firefox instead of disabling the disk cache to prevent Firefox from loading pages from the cache on the next start.
