View Full Version : Firefox iframe caching issues

04-26-2007, 05:42 PM
I've been banging my head against the wall with this issue for a while now. I am trying to load a flickr map into an iframe on my website. It's a very simple bit of code, and it works perfectly in every browser except firefox, which seems to be caching the iframe unpredictably.

The problem is solved in firefox by right clicking on the iframe and choosing "this frame > reload frame". This is by no means an user friendly solution. I have tried multiple approaches to solving this problem, from trying to prevent all caching on the page, to javascript workarounds, to rendering partials (I'm using ruby on rails).

Does anyone know a clever way to fix this issue? You can take a look at the problem at http://www.nuttersmark.com/photos/show by clicking on the "View By Location" icon.
