Description

15 years ago
Mozilla gets a "cache-control:public max-age: 86000"-response and does not cache
the file. It seems to put the file in the memory-cache, but it reloads it every
time anyway. In about:cache, it shows an expiration date of 1969 for that file.

The file is a background graphic for an html-page. The same goes for the
cascading style sheet.

If I set the cache-settings to "Never", mozilla caches all files, even those
marked as "cache-control: no-cache pragma: no-cache".

There are mixed cache/no-cache files on that server.

The entry for the cascading stylesheet looks like this:

the correct syntax for the header is: "Cache-control: public, max-age=86000"
