View Full Version : firefox IFRAME

It appears firefox location.reload() doesn't quit work like IE...

In IE I get a newer document (if it has changed I see the changes) however firefox caches the damn document and requires a entire page refresh (not just IFRAME) inorder to get the updated document :(

I've tried everything...from changing the URL back and forth...replace, reload i've even replaced the HTML using innerHTML and tried removeCHild incase I could somehow remove the element from the DOM and re-create it in hopes that it would trick the browser into thinking an entire page refresh had bee executed.

Anyone know how firefox can be tricked into retreiving a new document and NOT cache it???

Thanks :)

Show us some code. My crystal ball has been on the fritz lately but it sounds like you are trying to do a location.reload() on just an Iframe, is that right? If so you may want to try:


Which should force a download from the server rather than local cache.
