This bug has caused be some problems for me when checking that affiliate tracking pixel-images have been set correctly as the session data used to generate the image urls is cleared after the pixel is generated. Then when viewing source it appears to have generated the wrong URL (ie the data is missing) I suspect that this is because it (correctly) does not cache secure pages, but there should be some way Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Create a page on a server that increments a session variable each time it is requested. A sample (in ASP3.0/VBScript) would be: <% if session("counter")="" then session("counter")=0 session("counter")=session("counter")+1 response.write session("counter") %> request this page multiple times over HTTP. View source for this page repeat over HTTPS Actual Results: The number displayed will be incremented each time the page is requested. When viewing source of the HTTP served page, the source will show the same number that is displayed in the main window. However when repeated over HTTPS the source will have a number one higher than that displayed in the window. Viewing source a second time will show a number 2 higher etc. Expected Results: the text in view-source should be the source code used to render the page Installed Plugins ================= Mozilla Default Plug-in Windows Genuine Advantage validation plug-in QuickTime Plug-in 7.0.3 VLC multimedia plugin Shockwave Flash Google VLC multimedia plugin 1.0 RealJukebox NS Plugin RealPlayer(tm) G2 LiveConnect-Enabled Plug-In (32-bit) RealPlayer Version Plugin Shockwave for Director Microsoft Office 2003 Yahoo Application State Plugin Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition 5.0 Update 6 Adobe Acrobat Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library Microsoft® DRM Extensions Installed ==================== IE View 1.2.7 Live HTTP Headers 0.11 Sage 1.3.6 Dom Inspection 184.108.40.206 Talkback 220.127.116.11 Aardvark 1.0 (disabled) Greasemonkey 0.6.4 SearchStatus 1.15 refspoof 0.7.0 chatZilla 0.9.73 Web Developer 1.0.2 BugMeNot 1.3 OperaView 0.4.1 Flashblock 1.5.1 PDF Download 0.6
