This option does not exist in Firefox. We need it badly. Help Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. The only way around this is to use Mozilla or keep clicking re-load.
in about:config set browser.cache.check_doc_frequency to 1 (see http://www.mozilla.org/quality/networking/docs/netprefs.html) Its not something that users will typically need. If a webserver needs this, then it should be sending very short expiration headers to the client so the default setting (based on the expiration date sent by the server) works fine. This pref just exists to allow forcing this in situations where for whatever reason we don't want to ever use cache. There won't be UI for this in Firefox, but the pref will always be available.
