In the URL I provided, there is a php script with the following code
Now, when browser.cache.memory.enable=true it all loads smoothly but when the option is turned to false the page stops loading immediately after getting the header, I was having problem with my page and I narrowed it to the session_start() in php, I also asked my Windoze friend to check this problem, he confirmed, it probably affects all platforms. I would also check other Firefox version, but I don't have much time, sorry, posting this bug here already took enough of it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set browser.cache.memory.enable=false
2.Go to
3.Wuala, page doesn't load.

Actual Results:  
Page didn't load.

Expected Results:  
Load the page. :)

Didn't I provide them in Details ? :P This bugzilla is really weird.

So this is the reason! The cookies. I should have noticed this myself...

Yes, I can confirm this bug. However, it only happens on NON-SSL pages!

I already stopped using Firefox on my Linux system, as uninstalling and reinstalling did not change anything, and I could not remember any setting changes, that could have lead to this problem. So now, about 4 months later - using Konqueror the whole time - I again tried to fix the problem, reinstalling Firefox itself, removing all extensions and other stuff, but nothing made it work. Suddenly I rememberd having changed this cache setting to false, as Firefox started to consume enormous amounts of memory, after running more than a day. So I changed the value to its default (true), and suddenly it was working again!

I will now switch back to disabling "browser.cache.disk.enable". However, this did not eleminate the "memory leak" (call it what you like to, I cannot imagine a better name at the moment ;)) in the past - but maybe it does now.

Thanks in advance, for fixing this issue! ;)

Br, Thomas.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

This is probably a dupe of bug 184304 that was fixed for Firefox 2 but not ported back for Firefox 1.5. It works for me in FF

Actually, this is definitely a dupe as the testcase page is served with

   Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0
   Pragma: no-cache
