Closed Bug 287501 Opened 16 years ago Closed 15 years ago
cannot load certain site due to memory cache disabled
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2 After disabling memory cache in about:config and restart Firefox, certain website will refuse to load. Including www.ebay.ca (www.ebay.com works fine) www.altavista.com and some more which I forget. When you enter the URL of those site, or click any hyperlink that link to it, the status bar will show "Waiting for www.ebay.ca" then it simply said "done" without displaying the new page. Old page is still there and no eror message at all. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.disable browser.cache.memory.enable in about:config 2.restart Firefox 3.Try www.ebay.ca or www.altavista.com Actual Results: nothing is loaded. old page remain on the screen Expected Results: should load the page correctly Tested on plain Firefox 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 with no extention
If I set browser.memory.cache.enable=false, these websites fail to load. If I set browser.memory.cache.enable=true and browser.memory.cache.capacity=1, then these websites load correctly! So this bug has something to do with the memory cache being on or off, regardless of the size of the memory cache.
This bug also affects www.zend.com and some sites that use php session cookies. In a test site that did nothing special beyond use standard php sessions the site failed to load. The bug might be related to the handling of session cookies. This bug still exists as of Firefox version 1.0.4
This bug is clearly related to the http cache related headers and is easily reproductible. By default php session cookies are sent with a 'Pragma: no-cache' header. If the firefox memory cache is disabled, the pages won't load, although the browser shouldn't cache anything... On the other hand, if one sets the php session_cache_limiter to 'private', thus allowing the browser to cache the content, then the page will load. But this bug IS related to the cache disk capacity since when set to 0, the browser will load the page.
(In reply to comment #3) > But this bug IS related to the cache disk capacity since when set to 0, the > browser will load the page. good point, JMC. The memory cache problem goes away if the disk cache is disabled! Here are my test results: - browser.cache.disk.capacity=0 and browser.cache.memory.capacity=0 --> ebay.ca loads correctly - browser.cache.disk.capacity=0 and browser.cache.memory.capacity=1 --> ebay.ca loads correctly - browser.cache.disk.capacity=1 and browser.cache.memory.capacity=1 --> ebay.ca loads correctly - browser.cache.disk.capacity=1 and browser.cache.memory.capacity=0 --> ebay.ca fails to load!
I got the same problem with using 1.5 Beta 1, sites like www.klipfarm.com wont load :(
Additional sites that don't load: world.altavista.com www.archive.org www.linuxpackages.net

Additional sites that don't load: www.guiadohardware.net www.radiouol.com.br
This is happening on the MacOSX platform as well -- ATM I'm using Camino as of the past weekend's nightly builds, but I've seen this on Firefox & earlier Mozilla as well -- this has been going on for over a year IIRC. Another website that refuse to load in this manner: www.versiontracker.com
