Is the bug where when you hit the back button the page does not load correctly fixed?

I believe it is. Upon my initial testing, the bug was not reproduced.

I checked it out immediately after updating, and the Back bug is definitely still present, easily reproduceable on the AppleVis site. As always, reloading the webpage still works for getting around the bug when it shows up.

I will note that AppleVis is the only site I go to where the bug happens regularly, on either my Mac or my iPad. All other sites I visit either don't exhibit the bug or only do so on an infrequent basis, maybe a couple times total per month or so.

Has anyone noticed the weird downloads issue? When I start downloading a file and press command option l, VOiceOver says show downloads but nothing happens. I can no longer view the progress of my downloads. What's going on here? If this is a bug it needs to be reported ASAP and I will report to the accessibility team as soon as others confirm it here.
