Problem with cache on Firefox Developer Edition
I'm beginner in development. Today I'm working on some CSS files.
But when I reload, the content don't load the new features. I've try to clear cache, remove stockage on the console , and also try command + f5 (on iMac).
The only one solution I've founded is to clear cache , leave firefox , shutdown computer and restart.
Very contraignant. I've test on Chrome and it work well. So I don't know what I need to do to...
I'm using MAMP to lauch app on local
Hi Matheo, Firefox 79 has a new and more tenacious mechanism for caching CSS. Command+F5 or Shift-clicking the reload button in the toolbar should force a reload, but if that isn't working, you could try a different workaround: in the developer tools, if you click over to the Network tab, you can check the box for Disable Cache.Read this answer in context 👍 1

Hello, Since one week (but i was in holidays the 2 previous weeks) Firefox cache turn me crazy. I disconnect from an account or reload a page (where content have been changed) and data are not updated. I have to empty cache each time to be sure data are the good one. To work in sites backoffice it's just a nightmare !
Also when i save a form sometimes it don't save values. It's crazy ... Big problem with cache system since one or 2 versions. Please correct this fast. Firefox become unusable.
Also : HOW TO CHANGE CACHE BEHAVIOUR ??? Now more option to set this ...

Hi pascal12, try turning off disk caching to see whether that helps:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.
(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste cache and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click the browser.cache.disk.enable preference to switch the value from true to false
About this part --

-- I'm not sure what you mean by saving the form. Do you mean when you submit the form, it isn't getting submitted successfully? That seems like a different problem, probably not related to excess caching.
Hi Matheo, as another workaround, I created an extension you can use to temporarily prevent caching of CSS files from your own servers (or any servers, you create the host list and set the host permissions):
(I'm still trying to figure out a good user interface for managing addition and removal of host permissions. Hopefully Firefox will have a native one at some point.)
