Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to a random page you haven't been to before (without a ? in the URL). 2. Ctrl+I. Result: Page Info says "Source: Disk Cache" Expected: "Source: Web" It would be nice if the sources included reasons: Source: Web (wasn't in cache) Source: Web (cached version had expired) Source: Web (cached version failed validation) Source: Cache (validated freshness through Web) Source: Cache (hasn't expired, didn't check for freshness) Source: Cache (expired, but in offline mode) But the important thing is that Page Info shouldn't lie.
it doesn't lie, the page really is in the cache.
Is the page info entry supposed to say whether the page is cached, or whether the page displayed came from the cache?
both :) if the cache (either memory or disk) is active, the page is downladed, stored in the cache, and then displayed from the cache. Currently I don't think there is an easy way to know if mozilla actually had to go out over the network and download everything, or if it had everything in the cache already, which, I'll admit, would be more useful than the current implementation. There might be away to guess though. I'll check.
no, there doesn't appear to be any way to guess. any ideas?
