Hello, Since v80 cache is completly buggy. It don't refresh pages when it changes. For me it's a bug and many of our customers working with Firefox have the same problem.

Working in websites backoffice (Joomla, Prestashop, etc ...) is now almost impossible ! We have to use CTRL-F5 each time we load or relaod a page ...

Is Mozilla technical team aware of this problem ??

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.

On our side we have reviewed and modified cache policy on our servers.

Nginx config was changed from this :

map $sent_http_content_type $expires {

  default                    31d;
  text/css                   90d;
  text/js                    120d;
  application/javascript     120d;
  ~image/                    90d;

}

To this :

map $sent_http_content_type $expires {

  default                    off;
  text/html                  epoch;
  text/css                   max;
  text/js                    max;
  application/javascript     max;
  ~image/                    max;

}

It seems to solve the problem ... BUT now we have no more HTML elements cached by browser :/
