Are the amazonaws image links permalinks? (context menu bug, forum upload from web link bug)

Are links such as https://s3.amazonaws.com/fvd-data/notes/341875/1422037640-lpgC1J/screen.png
permalinks that I can rely upon to post into forums, or are they short-lived links only resulting from step 6 below?

Posting this as a bug because when filing this I found two bugs (marked as BUG below):

Steps I did :

  1. Save a note to the Nimbus Notes area
  2. Go go Nimbus Notes using: https://nimbus.everhelper.me/client/
  3. Single left mouse click on the note. Why? Because there is a BUG here
    1. In Firefox you have to first left mouse button click on the name of the note, and second, right mouse click on the note to see the Javascript context menu, as otherwise you will get the Firefox context menu and not the one provided by Nimbus Notes.
    2. Probably not a bug you can do anything about in a Firefox extension, so this is to warn other users about it.
  4. Right mouse click on a note to bring up the context menu.
  5. Click on Get Public Link
  6. In the page that is displayed, click on the screenshot.
  7. See a URL of https://s3.amazonaws.com/fvd-data/notes/341875/1422037640-lpgC1J/screen.png
    1. Which I would paste here but there is another BUG in the fvdmedia.userecho.com forum: The Insert Image icon is busted: it does not do anything ... I expected the image to be downloaded from https://s3.amazonaws.com/fvd-data/notes/341875/1422037640-lpgC1J/screen.png and pasted right here). 
    2. Hacked around it by saving the image to disk and inserting it:


The whole point of this: We need to make it easier to have permalinks directly to screenshots for collaboration elsewhere in the web, not just inside the nimbus products.

Thanks! And kudos again for a promising extension! Even with all of my complaints, I love it!
