Description

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3)

XMLHttpRequest can be used in JavaScript to fetch data from the server.

XMLHttpRequest is used to make web pages/applications more interactive.

The data that is fetched is not necessarily dynamic as to be non-cacheable.

If cacheable data is not cached, then the opposite effect occurs - the web page becomes less dynamic.

IE's equivalend e.g. Msxml2.XMLHTTP caches data as expected.

1.7.3 is a really old release... you should upgrade, that version has known security problems.

anyway, this bug has been fixed in Gecko 1.8 (SeaMonkey 1.0, Firefox 1.5, etc)

also, your bug report is missing steps to reproduce... it's unclear to me how the testcase here works/what it is supposed to show.
