Summary:Without HTTPS Everywhere add-on enabled, hitting...
Original Request:
OK, so this is strange: Without the HTTPS Everywhere add-on enabled in my browser, hitting the "Next Page" link in my DW Inbox logged me out twice. Tested it again after it happened the first time: I have the HTTPS Everywhere Beta enabled on DW but had the HTTPS Everywhere add-on disabled. Then I hit "Next page" in my Inbox and got logged out.

Stunned, I hit the browser Back button and the "Next page" link again - and got logged out again. So I re-enabled the HTTPS Everywhere add-on, hit the browser Back button and the "Next page" link again, and this time was brought to page 2 of my Inbox just as I was supposed to be. So...(just tested a third time while writing this request...with the browser add-on disabled, I get logged out when I hit the Inbox's "Next page" link every single time.

So, I guess for those of us testing DW's HTTPS Everywhere beta, if you don't have the add-on installed and enabled, you might get logged out of DW by clicking the Inbox's "Next page" link.

BTW, this happened in Firefox 52.0b7 (Beta Firefox because I'm just beta-ing everything, lately) on Win10, if that helps.

Also, getting logged out when I hit the "Next page" link in my Inbox doesn't happen if I first disable the HTTPS Everywhere Beta (I was going to mention that in my top post here but somehow I forgot).

Switched to Firefox 51.0.1 Dev Edition; it's not happening in this version. I'm using it on a fresh install of Win10, which by itself I don't think is the difference (but might be), so I'm about to switch back to Beta Firefox just to see if getting logged out by clicking the Inbox "next page" button happens again.

Scratch the above, I had the steps to reproduce the bug reversed when I did it. I'll have to test the Dev version again (and probably the regular version, and some other browsers, too, because this bug fascinates me) but it's still happening in Firefox Beta, fwiw. So if I can get it to happen in other versions of Firefox and/or other browsers I'll probably scrap this request entirely and write a new one to get everything in one text box so as not be as confusing.
