Hi Amir,

That's expected behavior -- the files browser is used to explore the private files area, and those URLs will only work for Journal Managers or Administrators. One easy way to permit uploads into the public files area is to create a symbolic link on your server from the files directory into your "public" subdirectory, and then upload there using the files browser.
