I've been hopelessly wandering the world-wide web trying to figure out how to really, actually disable cache in Firefox. I've found a lot of solutions that don't actually, really do anything at all. Most answers explain how to delete the cache, but I need to disable it, not delete it, for all types of content, whether images, HTML, CSS, name it. All of it, always, every time, without exceptions.
The particular problem I have now is that my CSS (hosted on localhost:82) always gets remembered for some reason. I need to reload about 3-5 times before Firefox actually bothers to read the CSS file again. I need it read every single time. I've got plenty of bandwidth running to 127.0.0.1 and I do not need cache; much rather I need to know what the changes I make to my website look like.
Here are my about:config items that I've configured already:
browser.cache.disk.enable = FALSE
browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = FALSE
browser.cache.memory.enable = FALSE
browser.cache.offline.capacity = 0
browser.cache.offline.enable = FALSE
media.cache_size = 0
network.http.use-cache = FALSE
I really don't know how to be clearer; I actually, really want the cache off. Firefox doesn't seem to understand this.
Any help deeply appreciated.
