pseudo selector a:visited not working well

Whenever I put the history link pseudo selector a:visited {color: value} it works, however, when I click on one link all links in the page change colour. Why is this?

Obvious question but have you ever clicked on any of those links in testing? The browser will "remember" that you have indeed clicked on those and will display it based on your styling.

Can you link to your project so we can see what is going on?

Thanks, Rich, you can check it out here https://prod.liveshare.vsengsaas.visualstudio.com/join?38CDBDF2FFC5AC6F6F22296E9A981FA6D881. When I click on one link for testing, they all change rather than just the one link I have clicked.
