dp wanted to know why we are not eating dogfood yet and encouraged us to spend an hour with the 5.0 browser to see what is blocking us. OK, I tried it and attemted to file a bug report with bugzilla. Filled in a form but had an error in it. Got the bugzilla error messagae that instructed me to press the back button and correct my error. I did so but all the information that I had previously entered on the form was missing -- I had to re-enter it all over again. In 4.x, that information is cached and so automatically reappears when the back button is pressed.
Sorry about the description line on this bug not wrapping. That's another bug (see 8507). I filed this original report using 5.0 but I am filling this comment using 4.5 so it should wrap properly.
CGIs arent cached in session history. Maybe this requires a real cache.
I don't know what I'm supposed to do with this. When necko is switched on, it won't yet have a cache. We know we have to fix that. Do you just want this to be a bug to hang dependencies on?
Naa. If you think you already have a bug on this, just mark this dup.
Changing the component to necko to make it easier to track this.
Scott Furman is going to take over the cache stuff.
Wait a minute. The original reporter of this bug reported a problem with caching of forms values, i.e. so that when you go back to a page it fills out the forms the same way that they were filled in the last time you visited that page. That's part of the session history - not the Necko cache. Who owns session history ?
there is a bug 13537 assigned to Don right now that deals with form caching

Summary: cache not working (or: "Why I'm not eating dogfood yet") → Cache needs to be implemented
Okay, I am calling this the great cache bug, if anyone has a problem speak up (this is actually paulmac). Setting component to all.
I had set up a meta bug 14050 for cache.
sound like m11. our hopes and prayers are with you. gods speed scott furman. ;-)
Summary: Cache needs to be implemented → [Arch] Cache needs to be implemented
Added a new keyword Arch to the title to help make it easier for pointy heads like me that are scanning summary to see this is fundamental architectural stuff that we want landed sooner, and hence should have a high priority. I know it already has the priority... it is just easier to spot in the summary :-).
shooting for m12 tree open
*** Bug 19443 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Moving what's not done for M12 to M13.
Cache is currently implemented, but needs to be turned on by pref. See message on n.p.m.seamonkey
Status: ASSIGNED → RESOLVED
Last Resolved: 19 years ago
Resolution: --- → FIXED
I'm going to mark this as FIXED, since the code is basically working and checked in. I've filed separate bugs for individual problems observed with the new cache implementaion.
Bulk move of all Necko (to be deleted component) bugs to new Networking component.
marking as verified, cache exists now, other bugs to surely follow
