We have files that others download. The files get changed frequently but have the same name in the same remote folder.

Many times when they download from a link FF does not download it again but uses the last file (same name) that we previously downloaded.

I do not have control of the user who is doing the download.

The files in question are Windows exe files.

The user doing the download is on Windows.

So how can we force FF to download the file and not use the old file in cache????

A good place to ask advice about web development is at the mozillaZine "Web Development/Standards Evangelism" forum.

The helpers at that forum are more knowledgeable about web development issues.
