Firefox Browser Cache

For web development you will want the cache in the Mozilla Firefox browser to be disabled. Otherwise you will see not immediately see your changes properly. It’s easy to change the cache behavior as you can see in the following:

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Open the address about:config instead of a website’s URL and confirm the warning.
  3. In the search field that appears (“Search preference name”) enter “cache” or another part of “browser.cache.check_doc_frequency“.
  4. Find the line that reads “browser.cache.check_doc_frequency“, click on the value or the pen icon, and enter “1” as a value. The value will be save as soon as you hit “Enter” or click the “ icon.
  5. That’s it. Enjoy browsing without any cache obstruction by Firefox.

You can read up on all cache settings in the Mozilla’s Knowledge Base.
