Cache Sticking in 3.6.8 on Mac OS X

Posted

I'm a developer and I use Firefox as my primary browser. Since upgrading, I have to manually clear the cache every time I make a change to a stylesheet, some javascript - even html sometimes - before I see the change. I've set my offline storage to 0mb. Nothing seems to help.
