Yesterday I’ve posted a question about a possible configuration for FireFox. I think I have found the solution for it. First of all I must tell you that the option is not available from a menu (Mozilla has it, check the previous post).
Oke. Let’s go. Open the browser and type in the Navigation bar: about:config. If you didn’t know this trick from Mozilla, this is the time to find out. Here you can access all the properties/configuration Mozilla/FireFox uses. Changing a value here will be taken into account immediately (this is also important, as you may change the preference.js, but you will be required to restart Mozilla/FireFox).
Here the important keys for solving the trick are:
- browser.cache.disk.enable (true/false): enables/disables harddisk cache
- network.http.use-cache (true/false): enables/disables html caching
- browser.cache.check_doc_frequency (integer): configures the number of times after which the browser will check the cached page against the network page. Yupiii
Concluding: if you want that FireFox check the network page every time you access the corresponding URL set browser.cache.check_doc_frequency to 1.
Note: the explanations of key meanings are mine so if I am wrong please correct me.
