Firefox image cache

Try to follow the below steps:-
  1. In the address bar type about:cache
  2. Over here goto Disk cache device, now click on List Cache Entries.
  3. Finally you can use an extension like coolme to view images on mouseover of link.

Firefox image cache

As usual first attempt was use some php code to specify the caching parameters.

Code:
header(’expires: Mon, 29 Jul 2000 05:00:00 GMT’);
header(’cache-control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate’);
header(’cache-control: post-check=0, pre-check=0′, FALSE);
header(’pragma: no-cache’);
I have found that if anything has being changed then it will reload the same image by changing it's cache.


You can also achieve a similar process using javascript by utilising Math.rand()

Firefox image cache

Normally firefox has two caching options one is Memory and another is disk.

The memory cache includes elements which has recently opened pages, such as the images. The disk cache keeps everything that isn't in the memory cache until it expires. I would suggest you to have rotate.php show an img src=$random_image1.jpg tag instead of outputting the image directly.
