Problem with Getting Up-To-Date Pages in Netscape

Of late, whenever I attempt to open postings or threads relevant to my Netscape membership, I get old pages. I know this is so because sometimes (but not always) if I refresh the page in question, I get an up to date version.  Re-logging into the site helps sometimes but not always.

I've tried deleting old Internet files, and this has helped--temporarily.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Change your browser to Mozilla:

Thanks; I have Firefox at home, but not at work...hmmmm....Surely Netscape has to be compatible with IE. Any other ideas?

Thanks again.

There is a configuration setting called browser.cache.check_doc_frequency. Setting its value to 1 causes the browser to load a new version of the page every time it is visited. In Firefox you can type about:config in the address bar to change preferences. I don't remeber if that works in Netscape.
You can also try reducing the size of the browser cache to zero.

Thanks, tree. Can I do this in IE? If so, how so?

In IE you can click on Tools > Internet Options. Under Browsing History, click on Check Settings. Where it says "Check for newer versions of stored pages", select "Every time I visit the page". You can also set the size of the cache.
