Every once and a while after I visit a website (such as and NASDAQ.com) when I go back to it old information comes up on the website. The only thing that solves the problem is running defrag, but only temporarily, as soon the issue will reoccur. The fact that defragging has an impact is completely mysterious.
For instance, I went to a week ago and now every time I go the scores, news stories, stats, etc. Certain pieces of info on the website are current and sometimes clicking a link will bring up current info, but most is old. Let's look at what happens under the hood, what steps we would normally take to clear it up, and then make some guesses as to what else you might try.
I tried some chanegs in the config file too which I saw for earlier versions of firefox but they don't seem to have helped.
I have updated the file of my website and in other browsers my newly updated website is showing up without doing anything to other browsers such as Safari but in firefox the old website is still showing up???
(Gotta love those not-so-technical terms.) In essence, that check for "is there something newer than what I have in my cache" fails, or the attempt to download and replace what's in the cache fails.
For example, an auction website might refresh Web pages every few seconds to show updated bidding activity.While some people may not care if websites reload pages automatically, others may disable this functionality by updating their browser settings.If your Firefox browser does not refresh Web pages automatically, you need to make a quick change to the browser's preferences. Type the following text into Firefox's Address bar and press "Enter": about:config Firefox opens a page containing the "I'll Be Careful, I Promise! Click that button to view the page that contains your Firefox preferences. Type the following text string into the "Search" text box: Accessibility.blockautorefresh When you do that, Firefox displays Accessibility.blockautorefresh in a table that contains a Value column.I am using the most current version of firefox (43.0.4).Thanks I would like to be able to completely refresh all scripts, images and code (absolutely everything on the page) when I click refresh for a tab.
