First off, Tools->Options->Privacy->Cache is where to clear it Second, if the server tells the browser to cache it for a certain amount of time, Firefox won't go back to the server unless it expires from cache. You can hold shift and hit reload to force a reload. Typing about:cache in the URL bar also brings up what's in cache

Not sure if this apply to your situation. Let's say if the browser is instructed to refresh where everything should be refreshed. As result, if the main page was refreshed successfully the <script src="foo.js"> didn't. Then there are two existing bug you're looking for, not sure if it is a duplicate bug due to lack of info. Bug #234361 and Bug #236553
After reading the description of the two bugs in the Zook's comment, I agree that this bug is most likely a DUPLICATE of Bug #234361. Bug #236553 appears to be addressing a different set of symptoms, but could (or not) have the same underlying cause. To answer Zook's question: the problem manifests whether or not the HTML file has been changed. That is: view the page with FF. Close FF (or not). Make small change to .js file on server. Leave HTML alone. Re-view file with FF -- notice that FF is still using the old script. Thanks for your help, Mike and Zook. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 234361 ***
