Latest Firefox 32 beta seems to have broken the clear cache API

Posted

All addons (including Firebug) that have a clear cache option seem to be broken on the latest Firefox 32 beta. Some addons report an error when they are invoked to clear the cache and others just silently fail like Firebug.

Only way to clear the cache at the moment is to use the Clear Cache button on Firefox-> Options->Advanced>->Network tab

I am running Firefox 32 beta on windows 8.1

Regards Sanjay

That is likely caused by switching on the new HTTP cache in that version.

You can switch back to the old cache:

  • about:config page: browser.cache.use_new_backend_temp = false
