Description

5 years ago
By bug 862222 people are now able to circumvent the caching of web fonts. Though this is not working if the fonts are used within an iframe.

Test case:
1. Open the Web Console at http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/tryit.asp?filename=trycss3_font-face_rule
2. Reload the page via Ctrl+F5

=> There's no request made for http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/Sansation_Light.ttf, which is used to display the text within the right iframe.

Still an issue in Nightly 44.0a1 (2015-09-23). CC'ed Victor, as it also affects the devtools.
