Firefox doesn't really clear the cache

Posted

Just noticed an odd behavior in FF 68.0.2 Win. When I make corrections to a WordPress post and update, the changes are NOT reflected in FF even after I clear the cache; whereas they are reflected immediately in Chrome. Is there something I can do to fix this error? I much prefer FF. Gracias.

Hi runbei, after you cleared the cache, you reloaded the page (in the same tab) and Firefox somehow was still able to use a previously cached version? How about if you load the page in a new tab?

As a workaround until that is sorted out, you could try:

  • Shift+click the reload button on the toolbar
  • Ctrl+Shift+r to reload bypassing the cache

Do either of those work on your WordPress page?

Hi jscher2000. Unfortunately, the problem seems to have solved itself with time, thus I'm unable to test if your solutions would fix it. I'll keep an eye out and see if I can test the next time I update a post in WordPress. Meanwhile, thanks!

Sorry, not seeing any way to mark it solved. ??? Don't you just hate hipster design that hides essential information?

Hi lazlo.hollyfeld, you need to be logged in as the person who started the thread to have the link to mark a solution for that thread. Otherwise... chaos would ensue.
