Firebase storage url - extra params - ionic 4

I have uploaded a jpeg to firebase storage. The getDownloadUrl() for the storageref has extra params at the end
For example,

I am using Ionic 4:

I am not able to display the above url in the “img” tag in the ionic app.
However, if I give a another normal url without extra params at the end, then the image is displayed.
It happens in ‘ionic serve’. I did not had a chance to test on the actual device or in ionic3.

There is no problem in a angular application on the browser. The image is displayed fine with the ‘img’ tag in the angular app.

Any ideas.
