Page refreshing after form submission leads to an outdated webpage

I am a user of the forum, based on the my little forum ( script.

In the last days, after one of the most recent Firefox updates, the forum users observed a strange page refresh behaviour: when a user posts a new message, posts a change to a message or resets the unread messages by using a button on the webpage - she/he gets the outdated view of the forum. Without her/his changes.

She/he must explicitely reload the forum page (Ctrl+R) to get the new content.

Is this a result of some newly introduced pageloading optimisations? If so, is it possible to switch the optimisations off by a Firefox settings (globally or just for the webpage)?

Best regards, D. Wroblewski

Nobody had similar problem? Next Firefox updates didn't fix it.

The problem was not showing in the past, it is not showing in Chrome, either.
