I have a website and I made changes in my website but the changes doesn't appear in the web page by using firefox. my firefox is set to never remember history and I have cleared all type of stored data but the changes doesn't appear in my website. when i restart the computer and visit my website it does update my page.

I tested my website in other browser and they display updated version of my web page but firexfox is still showing non updated version of my webpage.

before i was unable to save preferences of my firefox after resetting the firefox it does saves settings but firefox doesn't update changes in my web page. i am very confused now.

All my addons are disabled, i am using windows 7 64 bit.

any solution please?

I have seen some odd behavior in some browsers including FF when it comes to problems with re-fresh/caching. What I do is close the tab and restart the browser... to make sure. If you would like to make sure the caching is disabled from the web server/HTML, use the following in the header of your page(s):

<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="max-age=0" /> <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="expires" content="0" /> <meta http-equiv="expires" content="Tue, 01 Jan 1980 1:00:00 GMT" /> <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" />

did you try this - verify the settings:

in the URL type: about:config

locate the following configuration variables and compare/change the values:

browser.cache.disk.enable false browser.cache.disk.capacity 0 browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled false

I just tried above mentioned but it didn't worked.

verify also that your browser does not connect using a "proxy" - a caching proxy will develop such behavior - it is often changed by 3rd party applications, and malware/spyware, or simply by the user.

also, after you exit from Firefox, go to the task manager and make sure there is no other instance of FF running.... end the task if exists...
