I am using /me/associated. I haven't posted any question in one account, so the response comes as:

"top_questions": [],
"top_answers": [],
"question_count": 0,
"answer_count": 0,

in the same browser window. Snapshot: snapshot is added for reference.

Also in application, it gives the same results. But when I send the request in the address bar of new tab of browser, then the response comes as:


Snapshot: snapshot is added for reference.

The above two response elements (top_questions & top_answers) are absent now. Why? Is this a bug?

See the documentation for network_user.   top_answers and top_questions are not returned by default; you must specify them explicitly in a filter.

When you ran /me/associated from the doc page and from your app, you used a filter (!-*f(6r3ZbZjn) that specified those two properties.

When you used the address bar of the browser, you didn't specify a filter, so the default was used which doesn't return those 2 properties.

If you use a direct link with an appropriate filter specified, EG:
you get the expected results.
