User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040914 Firefox/0.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040914 Firefox/0.10 Using the http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Test/HTML401/current/tests/sec17_6_1-BF-01.html as an example (sorry, can't really think of a way to show it due to a backend database being used). First load of the page has the "cashews" corrected selected due to the OPTION SELECTED in the HTML source. If you change that entry to any other possible option, and hit the reload toolbar button or via the right mouse click this frame -> reload this frame entry, but the user option failed to revert to the SELECTED option. However, a SHIFT-Reload of the page causes the correct changes to occur. Maybe this is for user entries, and the caching of those changes, and if thats the case, sorry for bothering you with this false bug. The only reason I see this issue as a bug, is due to the fact that if the OPTION SELECTED line is generated as a dynamically generated page with a database providing the OPTION lines, and therefore at time=t the first option is selecte, (correctly). At time=t+30sec the database receives an update from a non-browser source. At time=t+60sec the firefox browser reloads the page, and the page source clearly shows that the OPTION SELECTED line has correct moved to match the data optained from the database, however, the browser shows the last entry until a SHIFT-Reload occurs. Moving off the page and returning (via html links on the page) results in the correct behaviour. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. load page with a SELECT section in a form tied to a backend database utilizing OPTION and OPTION SELECTED statements. 2. Use the database (via the mysql command line for example) to alter which option should be selected via an update statement. 3. Reload the page using the toolbar reload button Actual Results: The option will remain the same, even though a page source shows that the selected value is on a different option (showing that firefox went out and queried the actual page) Expected Results: The new option should be selected in the combo box to match what the source code has. Tried pragma no-cache in case the data is in the browsers no cache, but the page source contains the correct data, but the browser is showing the previos value.
