If I want an automatic jump back to the calling page and use location.href="first.asp" everything works fine with netscape, but if a use ie4 the "first.asp" page is loaded from cache (and changes to variables that second.asp makes itn't shown). Why whis difference between browsers?

May by the use of response.expires=0 could help but I would like location.href="first.asp" to reload the page.

Any solutions?

1. Make sure the cache settings in IE are approx. the same (contact server once a session or always...)
2. MS made asp and IE so IE knows asp better than Netscape
3. A <META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="0"> will do the job of response.expires...
4. You could load location="first.asp?reload"
and put
<SCRIPT>
if (location.search && location.search.substring(1) == 'reload) {
   if (location.reload) location.reload(true); // true forces server load
}
</SCRIPT>
in the head of first.asp's html
