Browser Cache caching regardless of change in options

Hi from a short time back I've noticed my local pages (vdeveloping on localhost) are being cached regardless of my config which is not caching anything at all. This is particularly annoying when you make small changes and they're not reflected at once but instead they are only after 5,6,... 10 reloading calls.

I've searched for help and followed the instructions of changing options in about:config with no results

I'm using Linux and 96 version of the browser.

Thanks in advance

What 'config' preferences? My local files reload immediately with changes I have made.

browser.cache related... disk, memory & offline.

I set them to false or 1 when numeric. I've even changed "pdfjs.enabledCache.state" and nothing

Although not perfect solutions, I know of two ways to do this.

One is using the disable cache checkbox in the network tab of devtools. This will only work while devtools is open.

The other is control + F5, which reloads bypassing cache.
