Hitting backspace loads old version of page.

Veröffentlicht

On some websites, predominately Reddit and other forums, when I use backspace to go back, it will load a cached version of the page.

For example, I open a thread on Reddit. When I hit backspace to go back to the main page of the subreddit, it loads a version from a previous visit, anywhere from an hour to a day ago.

This is fixed by reloading the page, but I'd like to know if there is a way to make this stop happening, as it is getting annoying.

Thank you.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.

I thought this had fixed the issue but now it is happening again.

None of the recommended changes have been changed back, but the issue has come up again.

The cache files may be corrupted.

Location of the cache/cache2 folder; Windows: *C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\ Mac: ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ Linux: ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/

Close Firefox. Open your file browser to the above, and remove the folder.

I can't find that particular file pathway.

My Users file is as attached.

Looking under Program Files for Mozilla also doesn't contain anything related to the cache.

Have you tested after updating to 67.0.2?
