Firefox 5 seems to cache error redirects.If for example I get redirected to a 404 then fix the problem with the site, it will still redirect me to the 404.

Try to Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache.

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Cmd + Shift + R" (MAC)

That won't work. The problem is the caching of the redirect so you always get redirected before you get to a point where you can refresh the page.
